At first, return back old software source to your repositories:

echo "deb focal-security main"| sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/thunderbird.list
sudo apt update

Now check available versions:

$ apt-cache policy thunderbird
  Installed: 1:68.10.0+build1-0ubuntu0.20.04.1
  Candidate: 1:78.5.0+build3-0ubuntu0.20.10.1
  Version table:
     1:78.5.0+build3-0ubuntu0.20.10.1 500
        500 groovy-updates/main amd64 Packages
        500 groovy-security/main amd64 Packages
     1:78.3.2+build1-0ubuntu1 500
        500 groovy/main amd64 Packages
 *** 1:68.10.0+build1-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 500
        500 focal-security/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

You see last “1:68.10.0+build1-0ubuntu0.20.04.1”, install it and keep forever.

sudo apt-get install thunderbird=1:68.10.0+build1-0ubuntu0.20.04.1
sudo apt-mark hold thunderbird


Manjaro is a rolling update distro, but you can still install old software versions with some additional tricks.

sudo pacman -S downgrade 
sudo DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA=1 downgrade thunderbird

You see last version you want 68 under number 33. Type it and Enter.

How DOWNGRADE PROFILE from 78 to 68 after accidentally run of 78

In console check version and allow downgrade:

thunderbird --version
 Thunderbird 68.10.0

thunderbird --allow-downgrade

After this you can continue use your old profile.

Finally, fuck you Mozilla.
