Description Meethune Bhowmick 2006-08-23 15:54:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Upgrading to thunderbird- causes the taskbar icon and alt-tab
icon to disappear. It seems that
/usr/lib/thunderbird- isn't a part of
the thunderbird package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Has occured on all thunderbird upgrades at Redhat Help Desk

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date thunderbird
Actual results:
In gnome, you get a blank page icon in taskbar & alt-tab list

Expected results:
Should be a thunderbird icon

Additional info:
It was simple enough to fix. As root
mkdir -p /usr/lib/thunderbird-
cp /usr/lib/thunderbird- \

restart thunderbird and the taskbar and alt-tab icon returned like expected.
