This is just a quick reminder about FossaMail shown signed by Mozilla:

It's not "signed" by Mozilla, at all. Check the file properties and tab "digital signatures".
What you see is the meta information in the executable.

OK, signed is not the proper word. But this meta information needs to be fixed anyway, doesn't it? ;)

comm-based applications are a little funny about some of the more modern methods of branding and vendor metadata.. The fact is that they never needed to have a vendor other than Mozilla and they are closer to the old suite than they are to the modern browser. It will take some checking and fiddling to make this work as expected.. I THOUGHT i had it worked out for FossaMail 25.. But I guess not..

Likely, this will be simply pushed back to Tycho based FossaMail which I will initially head up since I am the comm expert and is build system related. Don't worry.. In the end it will be sorted.
I actually don't hold a grudge against someone talking trash about me if they're shot afterwards. I try to rise above that and find my own peace.

I'm happy to know you're taking care of all these pending items/issues, Tobin. :thumbup: I'm anxious about the upcoming FossaMail's major branch. If I find something else that could be fixed, I'll let you know.

Just keep working hard!

Please don't necro-post. Obviously things have changed in the past 6 months.
