Did you do a downgrade or a new install?

We uninstalled Thunderbird 7 and reinstalled TB 3.1.9, but we do not use a program like Revo Uninstaller to do additional cleanup. This should preserve the account settings, etc. and be automatically recognized when Thunderbird launches again. 

When it was a downgrade: did you see any problems?

We didn't see problems doing the downgrade, we needed to get the user back to TB 3.1.9. If we ran into anything severe, I assume our techs would have completely uninstalled Thunderbird+Add-ons and started fresh. The email accounts are IMAP and Cal/CardDAV are used to pull the calendar data & address book from the server so uninstalling client-side doesn't impact our user's.

No, when one of our users accidentally upgraded to TB 7 we found issues using Sogo Connector & Lightning Inverse. 

To fix, we simply put the previous version (3.1.9) back on.

To be fair, I haven't bothered putting TB 7.x on my work machine because the Sogo Frontends only shows the add-ons for TB 3.1.x & TB 2.x
Thunderbird upgrades itself on Windows. Maybe the user has to click on
"OK", I don't know.
