    Thunderbird is using too much CPU

    Hello, everyone

    I've used thunderbird since years to manage my email, but since couple of day, it seems different : indeed, without reason, thunderbird start using one of my two core for about 5 minute. And when I use my other core for something, it end in a freeze and I've to restart. That's really anoying, you can't imagine. But for different reasons, I don't like Evolution too much, and I want to continue using thunderbird instead. Do someone have a solution for me ?

    Here is extra informations :
    - I'm using what I think is the last version in the repository : 17.0.4
    - I've two adress : one GMail, and one for my university. The second one cannot be the cause, because I've try reinstalling thunderbird after deleting everything, and on a first time, I don't set my school adress in thunderbird, and it still do this.

    Thanks in advance,

    Pierre

    PS : sorry if I'm in the wrong category, I don't know wich one to choose.

    Re: [thunderbird] Thunderbird is using way too much CPU !

    first thing to do is to open thunderbird in a terminal and see if it spits out a bunch of errors

    next step would be to start it with the --safe-mode switch and see if it runs without issue. if so, then it is likely an addon or a theme that's messed up
