My apologies if I posted this on the wrong page.

For the last week whenever I open Mozilla ThunderbirdI get a problem with script running, then this: Script: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-month-view.xml:990

I don't use Chrome and don't know why this is interfering with opening the program. I have been clicking on 'stop script' twice to enable the program to run properly. How do I correct this?

Many thanks.

TB signs onto my mail server as [<IP address>]. Strictly speaking this is "illegal", especially if this is a reserved (non-public) address, since the EHLO/HELO is supposed to enable the machine to be identified. How can I get it to identify itself with an FQDN?

Reason: If I can do this, I can configure my server to drop connections from clients sending HELO/EHLO [<IP address>] which would strengthen my SPAM defence.

My machine uses Windows 10 Home (currently version 1909, installed 2020-02-17) Following the latest major MS update (night of Feb:16, completed morning of Feb:17), I tried to open Thunderbird. I got the message:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

So I rebooted. But still I couldn't open Thunderbird. I again got the same message:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

Not having time to investigate further, I have used webmail to get my email for the last nearly 2 months. But it's clunky, and it doesn't give me access to my address list. And in these times of covid19 there are people that I need to contact. So I had another look today. I saved all the files from C:/Users/<my user name>/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/<profile name>/Mail, and also from C:/Users/<my user name>/AppData/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/<profile name>/ImapMail to a separate disk, together with the address book (abook.mab). I then tried to do a new installation of Thunderbird from the Mozilla website (Thunderbird Setup 68.6.0.exe) - but after a couple of steps I was again told that:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

So I went to the Apps&Features screen in MS settings, scrolled down to "Mozilla Thunderbird 68.5.0 (x86 en-US), and tried to uninstall. Again, I got the message:

 "Your computer must be restarted to complete a previous update of Thunderbird.  Do you want to reboot now?"

I have run out of ideas.
