Hi Guys. I've been using Daily now for a few years, like about 6 or 7 and its great, except for the never ending consistently interfering updates! Please add an option to not check and ask for updates. I shall do them when I have the time and need. I do PLC and electronics development privately and the never ending popups for updates, activates and confuses issues that causes havoc in my programming and programs. This means that I have to shut down Daily and then my mail box gets congested because I forget to restart Daily. Thank you so much. Regards Chris.

Do you have any compelling reason to use Daily? As the name implies, updates are made every day, which is welcomed by most users on that channel. Suggest you use the release channel, and after installing it, but before the first run, open a Run window and type

<path to release version>thunderbird.exe -p --allow-downgrade

then select the profile that was run in Daily.

Sorry, but this is bad advice for someone on daily.

There can be no compelling reason to be using daily. The user should simply get off of daily - problem solved. (I wouldn't even recommend going to beta) Download the release version from https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/ and use sfhowes instructions.
