Thunderbird slow after almost a year of use
Thunderbird is becoming quite slow. Startup, response to actions and especially the address lookup as I'm typing an email address.

It gets so slow sometimes on my Ubuntu 10.04 laptop that the screen goes dark.

Can anyone know how I can start diagnosing this to figure out what's wrong?

This is TB 3.1.7 on Ubuntu 10.04. Not sure what else to post.

Run in from the command line and see if you have any error messages or warnings, then go from there.

Just tried that. Nothing, no output whatsoever and I tried some of the activities that make it "hang" and it did with no output either.

OK, I figured out what the problem was and boy did this speed up things dramatically.

Silly me, I used to freelance for a company and I forgot to remove the check mark for address autocompletion from the Directory Server.

Unchecked, and whoa look at that thing go!

Thanks, thread marked as solved.

I have the same problem
I have the same problem, but I don't want to disable addressbok lookup, does anybody know a fix/solution for this?
