Is there a file somewhere that tracks the date, time and version when you update Thunderbird?

Thanks.

Try the update.xml file in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Thunderbird\updates\* folder.

Is Thunderbird installed on your system's C: drive?
Have you set Windows to display hidden files and folders? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... windows-10

Try the update.xml file in the %ProgramData%\Mozilla\updates\* folder.

Command Prompt:

Code: Select all
cd /d %ProgramData%\Mozilla\updates
findstr /s /m "name=\"Firefox" updates.xml
findstr /s /m "name=\"Thunderbird" updates.xml

Move the update directory to a common installation specific location

For reading only as Bugzilla is not a forum.
