Codename: TorBirdy

TorBirdy is Torbutton for Thunderbird, Icedove and related Mozilla mail clients. It may also work with other non-web browser Mozilla programs such as Sunbird.


TorBirdy is experimental. Use at your own risk! Please read our design goals document to understand what we're trying to accomplish with TorBirdy for our users.

Install from Mozilla, the Tor Project website, or Github

Currently TorBirdy is pending review in the TorBirdy Mozilla Add-Ons website. TorBirdy will be available from the Tor Project website in the near future. TorBirdy is available from github as an xpi
