Par contre, et que ce soit pour firefox ou thunderbird, Mozilla a plutot interet à faire diligence pour qu'on puisse au plus vite convertir les extensions existantes ou en crééer de nouvelles.
Et d'ailleurs, et bien que ce ne soit pas le lieu, j'aimerais suggerer aux devs une fonction qui me parait essentielle : l'import/export des mot de passe.
Actuellement j'utilise password exporter qui fonctionne aussi bien sous TB que FF, mais evidemment pas sous FF57.
Cette question des modules complémentaires (et des themes ) ca pourrait bien etre le point faible de Mozilla sur ce coup la.
Mais ne boudons pas notre plaisir, Thnunderbird cesse le cousin gogol que l'on cache, et il reste à la maison !
C'est nowel !!
