Posted: 28 Days 9 Hours ago by: Mike EasterSaying 'Thunderbird TLS version' is confusing to me. The security protocols over the years have been TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 corresponding to 1999, 2006, 2008, and 2018. The default condition of Tb 78 is to not support TLS 1.0 or 1.1,

Posted: 29 Days 5 Hours ago by: Mike EasterIn the mint blog link previously about updating, the users were encouraged to update regularly or frequently and then to use timeshift if there were a problem. Of course, the more timeshifting the more demanding of 'time' and storage.
