[RESOLVED] Thunderbird v60 buttons in preferences

Postby pcdoctor01 » 2018-09-19 20:13

Resolved by using one of the three options:
1. Use a Thunderbird 60.0-0 deb file instead of 60.0-3
2. Go back to Thunderbird 52.9.1
3. Wait until 60.1-1 from Debian or something like that to fix this preferences button display bug.

Is anyone else seeing this with Thunderbird 60.0-3 with Debian 9.5?
Thunderbird 60.0-3 is not displaying buttons in the preferences section but version 52.9.1-1 did. I'm using Debian stable 9.5 64 bit and the XFCE desktop environment.

The Ubuntu 60.0-0 version does not appear to have this issue.
I tried a live cd of Mint 18.3 XFCE 64 bit and installed Thunderbird 60.0-0 and the buttons in preferences look normal.
I think the version that was recently pushed out for Debian is really a beta version.
The Debian version is 60.0-3 while the latest Ubuntu version is 60.0-0. What is really strange is Debian Buster (testing) is still on 52.9.1. Also the latest Debian 60.0-3 is called "Daily". I would have thought Buster would have 60.0-3 available already. Strange.
Here is a screenshot from Mint 18.3 XFCE 64 bit.
