email auto fill not working in Version 45.0

Post by Princy557 » Fri Apr 29, 2016 10:33 am

After some time I have tracked down a problem with TB 45.0 where the auto fill in of email address's when writing emails has ceased to function.
This appears to be caused by the use of ' Faster autocompletion of e-mail addresses 1.0.25'. Once this was disabled the address's auto fill started to work again.

Are there any updates coming to fix this?

Yes, our add-ons suddenly stopped working with Thunderbird 45. We will release updated add-ons in a few hours on our webserver. Then you can download and install them:

We have made an interim release of the add-ons available. "interim" means that we know of a few cosmetic issues, but the add-ons otherwise work.

Go into Thunderbird, Tools > Add-ons, click on the Gear icon and check for updates.

You should remove the autocomplete add-on. It doesn't work with TB 52 and isn't needed anymore.
