Mozilla, message icon had a little bug (star?) on it. Once I closed & reopened 
Mozilla, all messages in the in-box had disappeared. 
2) Subsequently, I have received two messages where (seemingly) all incoming 
messages have been scrambled together with rows & rows of capital A's +

3) Now I have received messages where there is no information in the message

Some messages come in correctly. 

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I start the software and receive messages to the in-box.

in one from various addresses, with a lot of scramble of letters and 
characters between.

Expected Results:  
Receive messages properly.
