It would be a nice idea if The TB Team would let us know in advance of an update that specific extensions will not work. In the last update (68.1) the font became virtually unreadable because of Theme Font Size being disabled. Reverting back to 60.9 was the solution but took a good deal of time to figure it out.

Just a suggestion!

There is a compatibility list for Thunderbird 68 on GitHub.

As of Sep 16, 41 extensions of the top 100 are compatible with Thunderbird 68.

I read that 75% of the FiltaQuilla code needs to be rewritten.

Thanks...Any idea when Theme/Size/Font Changer might be available for TB 68?

Theme Font & Size Changer is in the top 50 so it would likely get updated eventually.

There are no troublesome *.xml files in that extension like in FiltaQuilla.

Dorando Keyconfig is in the top 100 and the developer is having trouble updating it.
