Thunderbird 24.0.1 broke binary extensions on Linux (including Lightning and ExQuilla)

Thunderbird did an update from version 24.0 to 24.0.1 a few days ago, and unfortunately that update broke binary extensions, such as Lightning and ExQuilla. This issue is being tracked at Mozilla for Lightning in Bug 925823 with a platform fix being looked at in Bug 927073

ExQuilla is releasing, for Linux only, a version 24.5.1 which provides compatibility with Thunderbird 17.*, 24.0, and 24.0.1  This will probably also work with later versions of Thunderbird, but it depends on whether Mozilla bug 927073 is landed before Thunderbird 24.0.2 is released.

    Well, it actually does not work for Linux Thunderbird 24.1.0. I just updated yesterday and my Exchange mail disappeared again.

    See the current announcement for ExQuilla 24.5.2 that also works with Thunderbird 24.1.0
