Event invitation responses in Thunderbird broken

Until recently, it used to be true that no matter which personality an event invitation received by a Thunderbird user was sent to, the Accept/Decline response was sent from "main" personality. (How was this determined? First entered during setup? Top of the list? I don't know. Doesn't matter.)

This was both an operational and a privacy issue, since it's often not appropriate to reveal, for example, a personal email address to a business contact, and will often be confusing to the recipient of the response.

In a recent update to Thunderbird, this behavior was changed such that when responding to an *original* invitation addressed to other than the main personality, Thunderbird presents a pop-up window that says "you're not invited..." and a drop-down list so you can choose which personality to respond from. Big step in the right direction.

However, if there's a subsequent email received with a *change* to an event time, etc., the Accept/Decline response is again only sent from the main personality. There's no obvious way to change this. This needs to be fixed.

A possible fix would be the pop-up window and drop-down list presented to the original invitation.

From my point of view a better fix would be to send *all* invitation responses - original and change - from the personality they're received in, pretty much just like the "reply" function. Much cleaner, fewer clicks, right outcome.

Perhaps there's a reason not to take my approach, but I can't think of it. At a minimum, my "possible fix" should be implemented.

Hi folks,

for privacy concerns, how can I tell Thunderbird to not dial home checking for a new version and thus reveal details about my computing environment to people who are not supposed to know?

OpenPGP

Does Thunderbird 91.1.0 support OpenPGP signing/encryption with < 3072 bit RSA keys? I have successfully imported my 2048 bit RSA key but Thunderbird does not recognize my email as having any valid keys. My 2048 bit RSA key is a pgp key.

Furthermore, when I opt to generate a new key, the minimum bit length is 3072, so I am led to believe that < 3072 bit length is unsupported but have found no documentation to support this assertion.

Thunderbird OpenPGP Export ECDH Passphrase Error

I've exported my OpenPGP secret key from Thunderbird 91 to OpenPGP. The EdDSA subkey (certify, sign) works fine but the ECDH subkey (encrypt) always fail during passphrase verification.

Changing the passphrase in OpenPGP has the same results - changing the EdDSA part works fine, but unlocking ECDH part always fail.

Is this a bug in Thunderbird or is this a bug in OpenPGP?
