    Default Thunderbird 3.0b4 problems after the 11.2 upgrade

    Hello,
    My upgrade from 11.1 to 11.2 was fine, but the new Thunderbird 3 beta that replaces my 11.1 Thunderbird 2 seems to have some issues.

    First problem: I was forced to lose my passwords.

    Thunderbird 3 asked me for a master password I have never used before.
    Unable to discover this unknown password, I was forced to erase and lose my standard passwords configuration.

    Second problem: My "Local Folders" folder has become unreachable.

    - I can't browse the folder and its sub-folders anymore.
    - I can't make a new created account to use "Local Folders" as root folder.
    - The accounts configuration dialog box even freezes on the account tab if it's configured to save some messages in the "Local Folders".

    Thunderbird 3 has indexed all my messages during its first start, so I can still find mail saved in the "Local Folders" tree, but with keywords search only.

    I hope I solved the problem by copying the files manually into another account's sub-folder, but like many people I used this tree before to dispatch messages from my mail accounts with filter rules all broken now...

    You could install thunderbird 2 if you need it:
    Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.1

    The repo is for 11.1 but its possible to run its software in 11.2

    I would also add to this that when I click on hyperlinks embedded in email messages in Thunderbird 3 b4, nothing really happens, Firefox does not open, nothing. I even installed Thunderbird 2 from repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.2/ but that did not help either.

    B2 might have messed with config files, luckily thunderbird 3 final is supposed to come out real soon.
    It might fix issues, it might cause issues... who knows, not me, I never lost control.

    I wouldn't count on that.

    There is now talk of a further beta before they even hit the release candidate cycle so probably still a month away at least - but probably more like next year before we see TB3.

    Is the recommendation then to stick with TB 2.x and avoid the beta? I'm a bit surprised that the beta was included in 11.2, especially if the upgrade from TB 2 is not straightforward. Any experiences with IMAP?
