After update I suddenly can't open Thunderbird. Windows displays an error message saying mozglue.dll is not suitable for windows. SOLVED by reinstalling

Posted

My computer was updated last night (January 10th 2019) and this morning after restarting the computer, when trying to open Thunderbird, I got an error message stating mozglue.dll is not suitable for Windows or contains an error. When I look at the file mozglue.dll, I see it has been changed on January 10th 2019. Does any of you have the same problem? Do you know how to solve this?

just reinstall from getthunderbird.com.

I would guess you just got a bad update. Perhaps something on your computer interfered with the update so it did not go as planned. A reinstall it the easiest no pain way to fix this I think

Thank you. I should have thought of that, but I was afraid I might lose my saved emails. But it worked like a charm and I didn't lose any emails.
