Details

Updated thunderbird packages that fix a stability issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

Mozilla Thunderbird is an open source mail client.

A stability bug was found in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Thunderbird
packages released in RHSA-2008:0105. These packages were linked against an
incorrect version of a library which would cause Thunderbird to randomly
crash while in use.

This issue did not affect the Thunderbird packages released for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4.

Users of thunderbird are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which resolves this issue.
