Package: enigmail
Version: 2:1.8.2-4~deb8u1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Thanks for your collaboration mantaining this plugin.

I just updated Thunderbird on Jessie. Support for the 45.x series has
ended, so starting with this update Debian is now following the 52.x

But after the update, Enigmail stopped working. In fact, when I go to
(my email account) -> Settings-> OpenGPG security, none of the buttons
are working. Not even "OK" to accept the changes.

According I see, the Debian Jessie package has the version 1.8.2 for

root at orion:~# aptitude show enigmail | grep Versión
Versión: 2:1.8.2-4~deb8u1

But this version does not seem to be compatible with Thunderbird 52 [1].
Enigmail 1.8.2 is compatible with Thunderbird 29.0 to 46.0. That's why
it was running on the previous packaged version of Thunderbird 45.x.

So it looks like we have a problem here.

Could you please check this?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
