    Unhappy Thunderbird Hang high CPU

    Hi
    I've installed Ubuntu 12.04 recently, using Gnome classic not Unity.

    I have an issue with Thunderbird (currently version 17) when I scroll through emails or select them to view the application hangs.
    I see 'Thunderbird' and 'dbus-deamon' listed in 'processes' using 40-50% of the cpu, thunderbird goes 'dark' and I'm unable to click on anything until it releases about 10-20 seconds later.
    I could put up with this for a while, but its really annoying now.
    I've disabled all plug-in's thinking it was that.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.
    Kind Regards

    Re: Thunderbird Hang high CPU

    How much memory and how much swap do you have? How large are your mailboxes?

    Thank you for taking the time to reply to me.
    I have 4Gb of Ram, 9Gb swap (0% used).
    Arr, yes mailbox size, well that's a little big, I don't like to delete emails (except junk and spam) so its about 4.2Gb, but that didn't seem to be a problem with 10.04
    Kind Regards
