What is the recommended way of trying out the new Thunderbird 60 release on Ubuntu 18.04? I see several options:
- simply download the prebuilt package from https://www.thunderbird.net/. Will it use my existing profile or does it expect some other path?
- install some PPA (which one?)
- install some snap or flatpak version (how to get my existing profile into it?)
- something else?
However, I would like to use my existing profile for testing, so I won't have to recreate the whole configuration. In addition I would like to be able to easily revert in case it does not work for me. Of course I will backup my profile before, just thought I should mention this.
Best would be if I could switch easily between the two versions for some time.
