So I am running Debian 7.1 and am unable to find any packages for Thunderbird. Does anyone know what has happened to Thunderbird? There are no results in an apt-cache search.


Debian have re-branded Thunderbird to Icedove (apt-get install icedove). If desired it's possible to download and install the Mozilla version of Thunderbird downloaded from https://www.mozilla.org/thunderbird/.
