    little bit confusde, would you please post a screenshot and point out what "temp" you are talking about?

    did you drag Thunderbird from image folder to your application folder and run thunderbird from there?

    Hi Clevin
    I did drag it to the apps file but I opened it from the image file i think. perhaps i should unistallit and start again, but not sure how to uninstall.

    after you drag the thunderbird from image to your application folder, you should always open it from application folder.

    you can remove the image folder by click the eject button (small upward triangle in the Finder windows, next to the icon of thunderbird image)

    Thanks Clevin, got it sorted now.
    So, unlike windows, to completly uninstall a programme, you just delete everything to do with that programme from the apps folder? is that correct?
    Thanks
