I have two email addresses configured for imap using google's mail servers. I was looking for another process in task manager and noticed firebird using 900MB of memory Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1. Assumingly just run thunderbird ? 2. 3. Actual Results: Thunderbird used 900MB of memory Expected Results: To use perhaps 32-64MB of memory
correction this is *thunderbird* not 'firebord' (hehe) and it's version 3.0.1
please run through https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Testing:Memory_Usage_Problems and report results
I had a similar issue. I have 2 x IMAP account connections totalling 100+ folders and my entire email archive is around 5GB. Just over 2 weeks ago TB3 started to use huge amount of RAM and CPU power. At its worst, it was up to 1.5GB of RAM after just a few minutes of being started. I disabled global indexing and searching, restarted and ever since I've had no issues. Average memory usage is now between 60-80MB of RAM.
Hi Nick. We're still waiting for Noah, but let's start on your issue. If you haven't already, please please run through all the steps of https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:Testing:Memory_Usage_Problems and report results. If you find the only thing that helps is turning off indexing, please get a msgdb log.
I have been unable to reproduce the problem.
