Hi Marc,

On OSX having installed 3.3.1 choosing Send Document or other send
options produces no response and no log entries. Thunderbird was
selected from Internet options.

Yes, this doesn't quite work as intended...or at least, not as its
alleged to work on other platforms. From what I understand, you can not
simply point to the TB application bundle in your list of applications,
but have to drill down through the bundle's contents to point to the
thunderbird executable binary.

If TB on OSX (unix) is like linux, you'd do the full path the the
thunderbird shell file rather than the thunderbird-bin.

You also have to make sure when you want to send the document via e-mail
that TB is not already running, otherwise you will get an error message,
and nothing will happen.

Should work (I think - I do not have OSX) if you use the shell file
rather than the bin. If not, you might try '-compose':

/<path to thunderbird shell file>/thunderbird -compose

Nope,  tried all those variations - two real options; a) you invoke the
package which results in TBird coming forward, but no envelope, or b)
you invoke the binary, in which case you get an error message no matter
the flags indicatin that there is already a copy running. OSX does not
have a shell file I believe (at least not a like unix.)
