It's even 24.1.0! And it makes perfect sense. But it never crossed my 
mind. TBB uses FF ESR, but I'm using the latest TB.

I'm going to download TB 17 ESR, and check if thigs are Ok. Than I'll be 
back with a short report.

I bet you spotted the problem. But I'm going to check it out.

If TorBirdy 0.1.2 has support for Thunderbird 24, can I just leave my 
current configuration and just upgrade the TorBirdy plugin? As far as I 
can tell, all the connections of Thunderbird 24 are made through Tor, 
less the DNS part.
