Actual results: Now each time I launch Thunderbird it takes minutes with lots of I/O on disk. http://askubuntu.com/questions/195618/how-can-i-make-thunderbird-faster Expected results: Even after the first run if I close Thunderbird and restart it it restart making lots of disk I/O. What can I do to give you useful information so we can make this never happens again?
can you disbale global indexing and see if that fixes the issue ?
If global indexing is impacting your startup then I would expect that is more symptom than cause - and that you also have lots messages redownloading - is that what you are saying in comment 0 "it agains it loads my IMAP accounts"? Is it redownloading entire folders - see the activity manager? And, is this only your gmail account? please also comment on whether you see high memory usage, eg >400MB? Lastly, what version of thunderbird last worked properly for you?
Severity: normal → major
Thank you for your fast review. How can I disable global indexing ? How can I launch the activity manager to see message redownloading ? For the last version that worked I have no idea really.
Tools | activity manager - and you will see this download activity even if you disable global index at tools | options | advanced | general | uncheck enable global search
Ok so, Activity Manager : Indexing 1600 messages, Download 1300 messages in Inbox
Remy, soundsl like your folder is reloading. Did this stop in version 16? And if not, then perhaps you are seeing bug 806760
I don't have this problem anymore.
