Hi Richard,

Thunderbird Flatpak [1] is currently available. Could Thunderbird 
Flatpak be used instead of an AppImage?

adrianlucrececeleste is happy to help with getting Beta/Nightly flatpaks 
set up too [2].

You might like to cc yourself to "Bug 1290670 - Use Flatpak framework to 
distribute Thunderbird for Linux users" [3].

Flatpaks work (sometimes by default, eg Linux Mint) in non-rolling 
release distributions too [4].

Kind regards

Óvári
