Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.4 (20031205)

When I start my computer, Thunderbird launches automatically. Yet it is not
listed in the Startup folder in the XP menu. When I shut Thunderbird down, it
launches itself again after several minutes. I do not see a tray icon for
Thunderbird, so this seems like random behavior.

I don't mind if it checks for new e-mail in the background, but it should not
launch itself.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just start the computer
2. Close Thunderbird with the close button in the top right corner
3.



Expected Results:  
When I close the software, I do not expect it to start itself again. When the
software is running, I want it to check for new email now and again. A tray icon
that would indicate that there is new email in one of the accounts is cool too,
but should not interfere with the main program.

I was having this exact same issue with 1.0.2.  thunderbird opens when xp starts
up and reopens itself every time it is closed.  I was forced to uninstall.
