Bug Description

As Thunderbird has a different release cycle to Firefox and there is some overlap between releases, we're sticking with Thunderbird 31.* for security updates for as long as possible. We're just about to push Thunderbird 31.8.0 out as a security update to all releases. This is the last 31.* release, and so the next security update (in a few weeks) will be Thunderbird 38.2.0.

However, there is some demand from users to have Thunderbird 38.1.0 before then, so I suggest we upload this to -proposed for all releases and push it out through the normal SRU process.

Note, regardless of what happens with this, the security team will push Thunderbird 38.2.0 to the security pockets for all releases in a few weeks.

Since I use the same TB-profile from Windows and Ubuntu, sooner of later I expect a broken profile, especially, because the Lightning version is also different.
So it would be nice, if Ubuntu would not wait so long time with updating to the current release of TB.

I do not see any security issues fixed, but since is based on Firefox 38.2.0 I would assume there are?

I too received 38.2.0 in Trusty.

It seems all supported versions have received this update, so this bug should probably be marked as Fixed.
