Hi there guys,

I want to dump FC's version of Thunderbird for the moz version, but they only offer src packages.

How can I upgrade the existing TB install, saving my preferences, themes, ext's and mail?

thanks,
json

I see binaries here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/all.html

You'll want to make backups beforehand. Perhaps this'll help: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Upgrading_(Thunderbird)
