Configuring it is slightly more complicated if you have more than one e-mail account, but not much. And yes it is worth upgrading your version. If your distros repository doesn't have a 3.x I'd go to the mozilla download page and download. It's a .gz archive, but all you need do is unpack it and copy it to /opt or someplace and then create a menu entry. Nothing to agonize about, honestThanks. I am writing this in version 3.1 having installed it on my laptop, which is used mainly as a test machine. I installed it in /usr/local/bin to keep it separate from the old version which was in /usr/bin of course. So far so good. One difference I have noticed is I cannot use the escape key to close the email I am reading. I have to use ctrl-w. I must play with it some more to see what else is changed. NeilAnd as a further difference, it appears that with version 3.1 the English UK dictionary is incompatible. I like to check the spelling as I type. Does anyone know anything about this please? Neil
Hi Neil,I've had no issues with the English British dictionary - in fact I'm using it now to write this mail. I'll send you the xpi file in a separate mail if you want to import it manually.
