[SOLVED] Thunderbird language pack uncompatible



i update thunderbird to 60+  and it disable my language pack (spanish)

i found this solution.



.. we need to apply the old trick of editing the install.rdf file.
1. download the dictionary xpi file and change the extension to .zip, i.e. hebrew_spell_checking_dictionary_from_hspell-1.4.zip
2. extract the install.rdf file from the zip file, open it in a text editor
3. change line 19 so the maxVersion reads: maxVersion>60.0 instead of maxVersion>3.1a1pre (or 60.* to ensure compatibility with future releases of TB 60)
4. save the new install.rdf and add it to the zip, replacing the original one
5. change the zip extension back to xpi
6. in Tools/Add-ons/Dictionaries, click the gear icon next to the search box, Install add-on from file..., select the xpi file (or drag and drop)


language packs


i hope this help somebody.
