When I type a plain e-mail, Thunderbird starts looping and I have to kill it.
It happens rather often.
Can we get a stack trace see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/How_to_get_a_stacktrace_for_a_bug_report ?

I read your document, telling me that it doesn't apply on Ubuntu, nor to loops.
Down 5 screens I found an Ubuntu link. This is what you're asking, right?
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MozillaTeam/Bugs#Getting_a_stacktrace_of_a_hung_process
Not reproducible, starting gdb after loop start and getting a few stack traces, OK?
Yes that's what I'ma sking for.

Sorry I wanted to be sure of this before writing but I waited a bit too long :-(
The problem suddenly disappeared.
I'm sure I didn't modify any config except removing a language autodetect.
And the problem still occurred after removing it, then stopped. Mystery.

Now, the problem with release 15 is that FF+TB progressively use 50% of my 2MB.
I have to stop them, goes down to 25% and then slowly up again.
When 85% of the real memory us used, the system thrashes badly.
If you had a hint how to workaround this!

Thank you.
