    Default Unable to run thunderbird from direct download - get error

    I know that openSUSE has a repo with Thunderbird but they don't update it quickly enough for my needs so I prefer downloading and installing directly from mozilla. However, when I try to run Thunderbird, I get the error:

    Code:
    XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/mainuser/.local/share/Trash/files/thunderbird/libxul.so:                                                                                                                                      
    libXrender.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory                                                                                                                                                       
    Couldn't load XPCOM.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    It seem to be trying to load from the trash. How are you starting it (shortcut/menu/????)

    What's that based on? Latest version on Mozilla's website is 24.1.1, latest version in the mozilla repo is 24.1.1
    If you're running a newer version, then we're talking third party beta, and IMHO these aren't the forums to look for a solution.

    This error typically shows up if you are running a 64 bit OS and trying to run a 32 bit "mozilla/gecko" binary
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit

    I thought I downloaded the 64bit version but I may have grabbed the wrong one. Do you know where I can get the 64bit from?

    I got it from here:
    Index of /pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/24.1.1/linux-x86_64/en-US

    I meant stable, and it's in sync now but in the past I've found that when a new version comes out (and it's particularly important when it's a security update) the repos are usually a few weeks to even a month behind.
