Thunderbird update: Now starting up twice


Last week I saw there was a Thunderbird update waiting for me to install in Update Manager. It updated from v1.45.5.1 to v1.45.7.0 (both listed as ubuntu 16.04.01)
Since then, whenever I start Thunderbird, it opens twice once in Inbox, and again in Calendar.

I have always kept these two tabs open (in just one copy of the program), but its only since the update that it has started to run Thunderbird twice, making me close down one of the windows.
Has any one else experienced this at all?

I've noticed that closing TB and reopening, it starts again immediately, so I assumed it doesn't unload and as I don't know how to do that in Linux, I kept rebooting.
After more than a dozen different attempts at this, TB is (for now anyway) starting up in only one instance and with the two tabs I want - Inbox and Calendar.
Thanks.

I must have the Google-fu. ;-)

Glad it worked out, paxolin!
