Thunderbird update improves security for your emails

Developers are further optimizing the OpenPGP encryption.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a good free alternative to Microsoft Outlook. The powerful mail client comes from the Firefox developers and keeps getting new features. The new version 78.3.2 is now available for download by all users and offers a few important bug fixes.

Mozilla Thunderbird has a fan base with around 30 million users and is constantly being optimized. Thunderbird shares the code base with Firefox and is therefore dependent on the development of the browser. However, the Extended Support Releases (ESR) are decisive for the mailer. With the new Firefox ESR, which was recently updated to version 78, the popular mail client has been updated from version 68 to Thunderbird 78.

The new Thunderbird 78.3.2 shows that the developers are further optimizing the OpenPGP encryption. The encryption with subkeys has been improved and encrypted messages with international characters are finally displayed correctly. You can find all changes in the official changelog.


Users can download the new version from UpdateStar or from the official website.
