A lot of people use and sort of like Thunderbird. [...]

+1 but haven't encountered those problems.


It has had, sporadically, an aversion to sending http and
https to Firefox.

Rather say that it changed the way this was configured to make it clearer and in doing so broke the old way.


The latest version seems to have made
it impossible to read pdfs in Adobe Reader, and its own pdf reader
really _sucks!_ You can always download the file and then open it
in Adobe, but that's a pita. Latest release is 24.0.

Now, all of a sudden, you are talking about Firefox and not Thunderbird.

T'bird is on 17.x, FF is on 20+.
FF has a huge option for what to do with types of files, mime-types. You can chose the internal PDF renderer, which was introduced to get around some security problems, or configure FF to use an external reader, such s Adobe, which has - or had - security problems.
YMMV.

Thunderbird and Firefox both come from Mozilla abut they are not the same program. Do not confuse the two.


I think that somewhere there is a hoard of earlier T-Bird and Firefox
software, and it might make sense to find it and install an earlier
version. YMMV.

Earlier versions also had various security problems.

The only universal constant is change. If a species can not adapt it
goes extinct. That's the law of the universe, adapt or die.
