This page will informally document my attempts to compile Thunderbird in order to fix easy bugs and learn more about Thunderbird development. I don't plan on becoming a real :-) developer but I feel my previous background in C++ will allow me to help a wee bit.

The content will be migrated to more formal docs later.

  1. Follow Simple Thunderbird Build steps on Windows:

  2. Use Mike Conley's recipe for multi-core builds (I believe my Alienware laptop has 2 cores)
