[ubuntu] Installing Thunderbird 78


I downloaded Thunderbird 78 from the website, but I don’t know what to do with it. Normally, a package manager comes up and installs it, but this didn’t happen. What do I have to do to make it install, please?

    “Before you install Thunderbird, make sure that your computer has the required libraries installed. Missing libraries will cause Thunderbird to be inoperable.
    The installation file provided by Mozilla in .tar.bz2 format does not contain sources but pre-compiled binary files, therefore you can simply unpack and run them. There is no need to compile the program from source.
    The following instructions will install Thunderbird into your home directory, and only the current user will be able to run it.
    Download Thunderbird from the Thunderbird download page to your home directory.
    Open a Terminal and go to your home directory: cd ~
    Extract the contents of the downloaded file: tar xjf thunderbird-*.tar.bz2
    Close Thunderbird if it’s open.
    To start Thunderbird, run the thunderbird script in the thunderbird folder: ~/thunderbird/thunderbird
    Thunderbird should now start. You can then create a launcher on your desktop to run this command.”
