Important

This erratum upgrades Thunderbird to version 17.0.3 ESR. Thunderbird 17 is not completely backwards-compatible with all Mozilla add-ons and Thunderbird plug-ins that worked with Thunderbird 10.0. Thunderbird 17 checks compatibility on first-launch, and, depending on the individual configuration and the installed add-ons and plug-ins, may disable said Add-ons and plug-ins, or attempt to check for updates and upgrade them. Add-ons and plug-ins may have to be manually updated.
All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains Thunderbird version 17.0.3 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
