Released on 07 Nov 06, and this changelog was last updated on 09 Nov 06.

Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5.0.8 has been released. Release notes are available. This post lists the improvements in Thunderbird 1.5.0.8 over 1.5.0.7. This list encompasses almost every single known fix that went into this release. Do check out the known issues as well.

The Gecko 1.8.0.x branch (Thunderbird 1.5.0.x series) will only bring stability and security bug fixes. As such, no new features will be added.

Impact key for security issues listed on the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories webpage:

  • Critical: Vulnerability can be used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing.
  • High: Vulnerability can be used to gather sensitive data from sites in other windows or inject data or code into those sites, requiring no more than normal browsing actions.
  • Moderate: Vulnerabilities that would otherwise be High or Critical except they only work in uncommon non-default configurations or require the user to perform complicated and/or unlikely steps.
  • Low: Minor security vulnerabilities such as Denial of Service attacks, minor data leaks, or spoofs. (Undetectable spoofs of SSL indicia would have “High” impact because those are generally used to steal sensitive data intended for other sites.)

Changes in 1.5.0.8: (9)

Crashes: (1)

  • Fixed: 323531 – crash when deleting all attachments after detaching all of them from one mail

Thunderbird 1.5.0.7 Released

Changelog for previous release (Thunderbird 1.5.0.5) | Changelogs for other releases

Make a donation to the upkeep of The Rumbling Edge.

Released on 14 Sep 06, and this changelog was last updated on 22 Sep 06.

Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5.0.7 has been released. Release notes are available. This post lists the improvements in Thunderbird 1.5.0.7 over 1.5.0.5. This list encompasses almost every single known fix that went into this release. Do check out the known issues as well.

The Gecko 1.8.0.x branch (Thunderbird 1.5.0.x series) will only bring stability and security bug fixes. As such, no new features will be added. To synchronize the version numbering with Firefox, the 1.5.0.6 numbering was dropped in favour of 1.5.0.7.

Impact key for security issues listed on the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories webpage:

  • Critical: Vulnerability can be used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing.
  • High: Vulnerability can be used to gather sensitive data from sites in other windows or inject data or code into those sites, requiring no more than normal browsing actions.
  • Moderate: Vulnerabilities that would otherwise be High or Critical except they only work in uncommon non-default configurations or require the user to perform complicated and/or unlikely steps.
  • Low: Minor security vulnerabilities such as Denial of Service attacks, minor data leaks, or spoofs. (Undetectable spoofs of SSL indicia would have “High” impact because those are generally used to steal sensitive data intended for other sites.)

Changes in 1.5.0.7: (19)

Security issues: (6)

Crashes: (2)

  • Fixed: 339518 – Switching IMAP folders while “mark-as-spam” is running causes a crash

  • Fixed: 349929 – APOP information is reset after stepping up a TLS connection

Printing: (1)

  • Fixed: 342439 – printing certain urls (google groups and maps) from print preview shows the style/meta tags on paper

UI improvements: (1)

  • Fixed: 337815 – Messages don’t show; summary-file increases every time Tb opens

XULRunner: (2)

  • Fixed: 349007 – Trunk XULRunner doesn’ t package with modern PackageMaker
