*** WARNING ***

Anyone running Thunderbird 68.x.x , please be aware, automatics upgrades 
to 78.2.2 have now started.

This is highly likely a mistake by the development team, as the release 
notes for the latest version 78.2.2 state:

> *Thunderbird version 78.2.2 is only offered as direct download 
> fromthunderbird.net <https://www.thunderbird.net/>and not as an 
> upgrade from Thunderbird version 68 or earlier.*A future release will 
> provide updates from earlier versions. Automatic updates are available 
> for users already running version 78.0 or higher.
>
> Add-on support: As of version 78.0, Thunderbird only supports 
> MailExtensions. Your favorite add-ons may not have been updated for 
> compatibility.
>
*** TURN OFF AUTOMATIC UPDATES TO THUNDERBIRD 68.x.x if you still want 
to keep your existing extensions working. ***
