Parent article: A look at Thunderbird 0.4
I'm using Firebird 0.7 and Tbird 0.4. Using the "Tips and Tricks" from
http://texturizer.net/thunderbird/tips.html and http://texturizer.net/firebird/tips.html#beh_reuse
You can get Firebird to come up from Tbird, although it refuses to open a new window on an account that's already open somewhere else, so you have to have 3 or 4 identical accounts if you keep Firebird open for other tasks. Maybe I miss the utility in requiring unique accounts... maybe it's a bug.
What I still haven't found, is how to get a "Send Page" and "Send Link" for Firebird's "File" menu to call Tbird or anybody else for that matter.
There is also still some anomalous behaviour... Occasionally, Tbird will open the same message in a separate window 10 times, all on its own. Then when I close each of the windows by hand, ps() still shows the processes as active. Closing Tbird entirely removes them from the process list. Both Firebird and Tbird still commit suicide occasionally for unknown reasons.
They are both very close to going mainstream, just a few corrections here and there.
