[kwlug-disc] Thunderbird question

I upgraded a couple of Windows computers (WinXP, Win7) this weekend;
Microsoft updates, Mozilla updates, other application updates, &c.  I
had no permission problems with Thunderbird or Firefox on either
system.  I think you've got something else...

BTW, if there's objection to discussing Windows on a LUG list then
there's a KW Windows Administrator's list: http://sobac.com/~kwwa/  The
KWWA list administrator says "Hi!"
