    Hallo

    there is a new version thunderbird 3.1. During installation of this there comes a prompt, that ESS 4.2.40 plugin is incompatible with new version. So I stopped installation.

    Will there be an update at ESS for this new thunderbird version ?

    I have the same problem. I tried modifying the install.rdf file but it won't let me change it - I get messages saying the file is read-only and I need permission to change it, even though right-clicking on it and checking its properties implied that it is not read-only, and even though I am logged in as an Administrator.

    What can I do to force a change in the file?

    I downloaded the latest version from the ESET website today, but I still have the problem: I only see my mailbox in Thunderbird if I operate in 'Safe Mode', and Thunderbird's add-on dialog tells me "ESET Smart Security Extension 4.2.58.3 is not compatible with Thunderbird 3.1.2".

    Thanks,
    Stephen.
