I noticed, that on my Ubuntu 12.10 Thunderbird is only version 17.06 while Firefox is already on 21.0.

It seems, like the updates of Firefox are somewhat faster?

Do I have to install the PPA for Thunderbird Beta to get more updates?
Or are they unsafe?
(I have a lot of important emails inside my Thunderbird, that I have to keep access.)

Today, these are the latest versions :

In that case, I wouldn't enable additional repositories to install beta or pre-release software, since it can be quite unstable.
