Mozilla released an update to Thunderbird last week (version 3.1.10). This update addressed security issues. So my understanding is that 10.04 Ubuntu should receive the update. But my Thunderbird installation from the Main repository has not updated. Why not?

Do I have the configuration wrong? To get updates do I need to install the Mozilla PPA?

You will definitely get updates faster if you have the products own repository.

Thunderbird is here - https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/thunderbird-stable

Then

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Are there any disadvantages to using the PPA over the Main Repository (strictly speaking about the Mozilla Thunderbird PPA here)? –  Nick May 5 '11 at 1:08
