User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.103 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

When deleting unwanted e-Mails and Thunderbird (45.1.1) shifts to a "Not Responding" status I can click on the delete button several times but I do not know how many of those times have been "seen" by Thunderbird.


Actual results:

When Thunderbird comes out of the "Not Responding" status the series of deletes are acted upon forcing me to go tho the Trash files to check that I have not deleted a wanted e-Mail.


Expected results:

This is not really a bug but I would think it better to erase the commands cached from the time the program goes into "Not Responding" status to the time it comes out of that status.  I would rather have to click on the delete button once again than be required to change folders (or whatever else I would have to do if I used a command other than delete).  Thanks for your consideration.

The solution lies in determining what is causing Thunderbird to go "Not Responding".  Please see the steps in https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Testing:Memory_Usage_Problems and post your results
