For the second time in as many months I was pushed a Thunderbird update 52.1.0 which crippled the email program. it locks up upon opening emails that are more than a few KB, and when replying to emails randomly just pastes a section of menu bar bitmap into the text entry window and will not accept text. I just now was pushed the 52.1.1 release and it doesn't lock up when loading large emails, but can take as long as 30 seconds to do so on a 5MB/S internet conx. It used to open these almost immediately.

Can someone post a link to the release before 52.1.0 so I can revert to a stable build? We run our business on Thunderbird and this crippled our mailing today.
Thank you,
Howard Hoyt

Does the same thing occur if you launch the application in Mozilla Safe Mode? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

You can download the previous version 52.1.0 here -- https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunder ... es/52.1.0/

Thanks for the reply,
I restarted in Safe Mode and DLing a 145988 character list digest which used to take a second or so just took 52 seconds. I tried a reply to a few messages and other than the long time it took to load the message being replied to seemed to work OK.

I appreciate the link to 52.1.0, but that was the revision which initially showed the problem. Can you give me a link to the build before 52.1.0?

Cheers!

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Go_back_to_an ... hunderbird .

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird ... n32/en-US/ has the setup program for the windows en-usa version of TB 45.8.0 (last update to prior major version). By the way, 52.1.1 is available (at the same web site as the older setup programs) its just not at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/ yet.

Thank you tanstaafl

Revision 45.8.0 is installed and everything works as it is supposed to, very fast and no glitches I can see so far. I turned off auto install updates so I'll see the revisions but not auto install.
Thank you!
