- Add-ons that use custom autocomplete fields may cease to work properly because the old XPFE autocomplete interface has been removed from the back-end shared with Thunderbird. Example: Nostalgy. Affected add-ons need to be adapted by the respective add-on authors to use the Toolkit autocomplete interface (available since SeaMonkey 2.1 / Thunderbird 3.3).
