Download Thunderbird 3.1 "Lanikai" Beta 1

Thunderbird 3 left a lot to be desired, and many users who used it had lots of bad things to say about it. Many did say that Thunderbird 3 was probably a rushed project by Mozilla, however, the past is past and Mozilla has already begun to fix the problems in the new version, Thunderbird 3.1.

Thunderbird 3.1

Mozilla has released a new beta for Thunderbird 3.1, codenamed Lanikai Beta 1, which fixes around 100 bugs and improves performance for the email client.

Some of the major fixes includes:

  • Fixes to improve upgrading from Thunderbird 2
  • Fixes for auto complete, tabs and activity manager
  • Design improvements and corrections to the interface
