The departmental server coxeter will have software updates for firefox, thunderbird, and flash-plugin applied this afternoon (Wednesday, March 7, 2012) at 4:15pm which will require that those processes be terminated and unavailable for about 10 minutes while they are updated.

More extensive software updates (requiring reboots) on all our systems, will be applied next week.

The updated thunderbird has tabs (similar to firefox) and a somewhat different look on the toolbar at the top of the window.  If you wish to have the “original Toolbar buttons” that will be more familiar to you then you need to select the menu:

Help -> Migration Assistant


1) click on the “Next” button

2) do NOT change the settings on this page (there is not enough diskspace on coxeter to “Synchronize” your folders); simply click the “Next” button again

3) on this page select “Keep your original Toolbar buttons” (as you choose between that selection and “Message Buttons Toolbar” options your thunderbird window will change and you can choose the display you prefer); then click the “Close” button
