DanieBlog - When you update Thunderbird, you will get a error that “FireTray incompatible with Thunderbird 60.2.1”. That’s the current version of Thunderbird at the time of this article.

You know, FireTray is one of the most used add-ons, and it has the effect of minitraying Thunderbird into your taskbar. This is extremely useful, it gives you more space to work but still does not leave any new emails.

“Tray” add-ons are not compatible when updating Thunderbird

At first, FireTray wrote that their add-on works only with Thunderbird 7.0 – 50.0. It’s clear that it’s not compatible with Thunderbird 60.2.1, at the moment, I just think that only FireTray is faulty.

But when looking for other similar add-ons, they are not compatible with Thunderbird 60.2.1.
