Since Mozilla is moving to Web Extensions with Firefox 57. Whats the future of Mozilla Thunderbird? I'm currently using version 52.2.1 on Linux Mint and the latest version being 52.3.0 I'm a bit concerned about the future of Thunderbird. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Thunderbird I really like Thunderbird its my favorite email client and I know what some of you are going to say why use a email client when you can just your browser to that I say ease of use I don't have to login every time I want view my emails and also I have multiple email accounts so its very convenient to have them all in one place.

Since Thunderbird is an independent project I can't see how it will have much of any ties to changes in Firefox, at least by necessity.

 

I expect Thunderbird to remain a viable and supported e-mail client into the foreseeable future.

Yeah you got a point I'm probably worried about nothing. But still I cant help but feel concerned.

It think Mozilla does not even have a say in Thunderbird development. They left it a while ago.
