What is the green up-facing arrow next to the Calendar and Switch to task tabs at the top?
Thanks, Kerry

Moving to Thunderbird Builds as 71.0b3 is not a release version.

See viewtopic.php?p=14836997#p14836997 (New arrow symbol thread) and the screen shot in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.c ... 549242#c20

It talks about it being a button that you can click on to download the update for Thunderbird. It is called a doorhanger, which is meant to be a less obtrusive way to present decisions to users than a modal dialog, and mimicking what Firefox uses. I assume it disappears, rather then gets grayed out, when there is no update available.

https://www.ghacks.net/2016/11/25/firef ... fications/ says "Mozilla plans to ship Firefox 53 with restyled doorhanger notifications. Doorhanger notifications are small overlay windows that Firefox displays underneath the browser's address bar when user interaction is required."

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1578175
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1270597 has a screen shot of the doorhanger button used in a Firefox popup window.

i dont get that Arrow on my install, might have to try a new profile , it looks like it might only display when there's an actual update?

That's my impression.

Return to Thunderbird Builds
