  Just a heads up. SuSE has been doing work with Thunderbird 78.2 trying to
prepare for a move to it with the openPGP replacement for Enigmail. One issue
that has come from that is the realization that unless you enable a Master
Password for thunderbird passwords, once you import your GPG keys, they will
be stored unencrypted in your thunderbird profile. If you have never set a
mater password for thunderbird before (I haven't), it looks like that will be
required with 78.2 hits.
