Thunderbird disappears each time I shut down the computer -- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Thunderbird showed up on my screen, so I set up a new account. I managed to download messages from the server, but the next time I turned on the computer I couldn't find Tb. The first time this happened, I finally found it on my dashboard -- I'm so new that I didn't realize it wouldn't stay on the list at the left side of the screen. I locked it (I thought) to that vertical list -- along with the Help icon -- and now both of those are gone from that list, and I can't find them anywhere.
As I've been trying to get going with the Ubuntu, I found myself setting up the account three times, because each time I retrieved it from wherever, it seemed to have lost all trace of the account I had set up (except for the first time, when it still had the address book I'd managed to import -- that's part of another long story).
I don't see anything about this in any of the forums. I'd think that if someone else were having this problem, there would be a thread on it.
Can anyone help? I'm using a home-assembled Shuttle desktop.
P.S. Here I am in Edit Post. I inadvertently submitted before finishing with tags, and Edit doesn't seem to allow for adding tags. So that's a lesser problem with which I would appreciate help as well.
