Thunderbird 102 freezes frequently on Windows 10

Hello, I have a problemn with Thunderbird since I upgraded to version 102. I have reported this problem in old support thread which seemed similar, but since they are 2 and 5 years old, I feared that they would be considered as "closed" and my "bug report" would remain unnoticed. I profusely apologise for the multiple post.

My issue is specifically with Thunderbird 102. The problem manifests itself on my Windows 10 system, but I have no idea if it is specific to windows 10 or not, as I have not installed Thunderbird 102 on any other system yet. I've been a keen Thunderbird user for more years than I can remember (minimum 17, very probably much more). Recently, I was using Thunderbird 91 or 92 ... and everything was, more or less, fine. I upgraded to Thunderbird 102 last week because Mozilla's publicity around it made the new features appear very attractive. Things still work: I've not lost any email, I can send and receive email, etc. BUT, all day long, at random intervals, TB freezes just when I ask it to do something (e.g. clicking on a different folder from the one I was in, asking it to download email [I'm using pop, not Imap], clicking on an email to read it, etc.) The freeze can take different forms; I've mainly noticed:

  • a message from Windows saying "Thunderbird is not responding". A few seconds later, or a couple minutes later (variable), the action I requested is performed and everything seems fine
  • TB freezes with no message or other symptoms than the fact that it is completely unresponsive. I can do whatever I want with other programs (Windows is not frozen), but all and any TB window just doesn't repond
  • Same as just above, but with the TB window going a bit translucent

I had that behaviour a while back on another vertion of TB, but through the upgrades it had gone away. I've just experienced it again with TB 102. Thanks in advance for your help.

There were some bugs in 102, and release 102.0.1 addressed many of them. My suggestion is to upgrade to that release.

My TB upgraded from 9x to 102.1.2 and it just kept getting worse - to the point that it is now unusable.

For starters, once the program upgraded from 9x to 102x, I kept getting pop up notices that an upgrade to 102 was available.

And for each upgrade, the "not responding" got worse and worse. Now, with 102.1.2 it is unresponsive the moment it is opened.

If I leave TB open and leave it alone, it eventually will download 100 messages in about an two hours - it download one, then go to not responding for a period, repeat.

Once they are downloaded, and I want to check a message, i.e., to read it, it will go to "not responding".

And to add insult to injury, when I highlight a string of messages to delete, it will delete one, stop responding, repeat, at a slightly faster pace than that of downloading.

This release is a mess......
