It would be better to use the repositories. If you had issues it is a lot easier to remove / install.

BTW t-bird 6 beta is out.

It is not necessary to use the terminal and this only puts off many users imo, especially when you assume users know where to put the commands you post. Add repositories via Software Sources and install or update via package manager and mint update.

What is the advantage to the upgrade
Should we do it to fix "bugs"
Faster, more stable, what?

May I ask you a question?

When we want to install Thunderbird 5, Should we add not only 'ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-stable' but also 'ppa:mozillateam/thunderbird-next'?
