Not a problem but just for notice.
First I installed version 1.6.5.0 then upgrade to 1.6.7 and now upgrade to 1.6.8 but if I look version number from Thunderbird (2.0.0.12 (20080213)) add-ons list, it still shows 1.6.5.0.

There might be a problem with Thunderbird extension manager cache. The operations described hereafter for Thunderbird are also available for Sunbird, even if the profile directory is different (C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Sunbird\Profiles\<profile id>)

Before any operation, do backup your Thunderbird profile:
XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<users name>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile id>\
Vista: C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile id>
("Application Data is a hidden folder, check that you can see hidden files (in File Explorer options))

Close Thunderbird

In the profile of Thunderbird:
XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<users name>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile id>
Vista: Vista: C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\<profile id>

After having backuped the following files, delete them:
- extensions.cache
- extensions.ini
- extensions.rdf
- compreg.dat
- xpti.dat

Relaunch Thunderbird

Then check the version of the BirdieSync add-on.
