Mozilla also issued fixes for Thunderbird 3.1.7 and Thunderbird 3.0.11 yesterday. The updates are intended for Windows, Mac and Linux versions of the software.

"These releases fix several problems with large email folders stored on the user’s computer as well as several fixes to improve performance, stability and security," said Mozilla.

"Thunderbird 3.0.11 is the last security and stability update for Thunderbird 3.0.x. Thunderbird 3.0.x users will be prompted and encouraged to start using Thunderbird 3.1 starting early next year."
