I dropped the RSS feeds. Thunderbird was still trying to retrieve articles from the dropped feeds, going into an endless loop, verified by the progress bar in the status bar and CPU cycles in Task Manager. I turned off checking for new articles (both settings), and the problem disappeared. It seems that Thunderbird should know that there are no feeds to check, even if the account settings are checked. Reproducible: Always

(In reply to comment #1) > Duplicate of bug 272274? Yes. However, clicking the stop button does NOT stop the looping, based on inspection of CPU usage.
