Multifirefox, Thunderbird problems solved
I am using Multifirefox, a standalone app to launch and run different versions and profiles of Firefox at the same time for quite a while (it is a superb solution to have one profile of Firefox for developing [with a bunch of necessary addons] and a sleek version for everyday use, e.g. with only an adblock extension). Anyways, Multifirefox did crash after upgrading my operating system to Snow Leopard. Which sucked. The developer, Dave Martorana posted a new beta version that fixes this bug (problems arising of a different version of ‘libsqlite3.dylib’ that the new operating system came with then the one Firefox has built in). Jiha!
I am a Mozilla Thunderbird user for about 8 years now and I simply love it (the ability to move emails from one email inbox to another, saved searches, mail redirection, css user stylesheets… just to name a few reasons why I stick with TB).
Since I switched to osx about 1.5 years ago I experienced a weird bug: Sometimes when I opened an email (most of the time after moving an email to a different folder) attachments would have been screwed up. They still exist in full size on the server, but TB would show a file size of “20kB” instead, thus rendering any kind of attachment useless; Pictures were displayed only partly, all other files looked damaged. Yesterday I looked through the config editor (Preferences > Advanced > General > Config Editor) and found 2 boolean values that made a difference to that buggy behaviour, all my attachments show up correctly now (on my imap accounts):
These settings set to true, according to the thunderbird forums, tells Thunderbird to download each attachment in one piece, ignoring the (possibly wrong) reported size by the server.
