Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunderbird

since 2.0 thunderbird doesn't use a local start-page, but an online version. Consider to revert this behaviour for gutsy.

Fine for me to fix for tribe 4, but not a release blocker.

Couldn't we use a local version of www.google.com/firefox startpage? In Feisty, the homepage was useless after you had read it, and required to be change manually. Else, it could be nice if we provided on an Ubuntu welcome page a way to easily (i.e. with a click) set the homepage to some common ones. (Not for Gutsy, but later).

Sorry, forget it, I was thinking of Firefox homepage. What a shame... :-)

I don't have this bug on Thunderbird 2.0.0.23 (Karmic), as long as I install the thunderbird-locale-fr package (but this is another bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/thunderbird-locales/+bug/280651 )
