I have used Thunderbird for the same time, and I have seen the request
for donations every time I have started the software (since the project
become independent from Mozilla). The image of my Thunderbird startup
screen, which is identical on my Mac and on my Ubuntu PC, is here:

The fact that you do not see the request for donations from Thunderbird
confirms what I have written in my previous message: only a tiny number
of users looks at what is on the screen and is positively or negatively
impacted based on his experience/background. Sorry, but you are one out
of millions of users, and even 1000 complaints - which we do not have -
would be enough to get rid of the request for involvement/donations.

Of course, this does not mean that the current solution is the best one
and therefore there is space for improvement (which is not getting rid
of the request, as that would not be an improvement at all).
