Hi all,
I have an annoying problem: Seamonkey Mail starts automatically at pc startup and lightning asks credentials to connect to my online ical calendar. I insert credentials but later e-mails are not visualized, I need to close Seamonkey mail and open it again.
I'm not sure there is a relationship between this issue and lightning.

I have the issue also on Ubuntu 18.04LTS, Seamonkey 2.53.2, lightning 5.8.2.

Does anyone have the same issue? Any suggestion?

Nikos

I add some info: when I have the issue, commands in Seamonkey are not responsive.

Are you using the Lightbird add-on? If yes disable it.
Do you see any mail or calendar specific errors in Tools->Web Development->Error Console when you start SeaMonkey?

Tried now, same issue even with lightning disabled, so it's not related. In logs should I see something related to previous sessions? It looks I see only messages related to active session.

> lightning disabled

Lightbird not Lightning. Different add-on which causes problems with folder display. Do you use a custom theme or older add-ons?

My issue happens only when Seamonkey starts at boot, not when I open it manually.

Don't have SeaMonkey starting at boot then. Boot is a busy time program/driver/internet-wise and it's very common to have booting programs not working right - I've just had this very problem.

In your case, just open SM manually.

The problem is I'm lazy:-)
I'll see if I found a way to delay SM boot after a period of time.

Use Crontab?

I've added delay in seamonkey.desktop following indicated in this post

After 2 reboots, it looks I've fixed the problem.
