I think the question asked in other places is different than mine...
The update notification could also easily be disabled for linux... If you go here and open this file:
- Code: Select all
you can disable it writing 'default' instead of 'release'.
But it is not disabled, as it is for firefox. That is why I ask.
By the way, the update option should work for linux too, and for LMDE, at least seems to work for some people. You can read this carefully:http://hawknotes.blogspot.com.es/2013/0 ... -lmde.html
According to this, is not an Windows only option. It can be done easily in LMDE. But of course, to make it work, you have to be root or change the permissions for your user.
Sorry, I don't find this question answered in the forums. They ask why they cannot do the update, which is not my question.
My question is why the update request is not disabled in thunderbird as it is in firefox, in a very similar file (opt/firefox/default/pref/...)
