    Unusual Two Instances of Thunderbird in Ubuntu 12.04

    Problem: In Ubuntu 12.04, I had two instances of Thunderbird at startup. Exiting one also terminated the other instance. Here is the solution:
    ========================

    I noticed there was 2x "MinimizeToTray Plus" icons in the taskbar. MinimizeToTray Plus doesn't exit the program so it is impossible to really get rid of that second window... Here's what I did ;

    1. Disable "MinimizeToTray Plus" in menu "Tools/Add-Ons/"
    2. Exit Thunderbird (Be sure that the process is not running)
    3. Open Thunderbird (In my case, I had the same two windows problem the first time)
    4. Now Thunderbird runs without the MinimizeToTray Plus add-on.
    5. Close one of the window.
    6. Re-enable your "MinimizeToTray Plus" add-on
    7. Exit and restart

    Hi, I run Ubuntu 10.04.4 and XP dual boot. This solution not only works on Ubuntu but also solved the same problem in my TB PortableApps.
    Thanks.
