I have been noticing now for the past couple of months everytime thunderbird seemingly installs an update, it freezes my thunderbird application and becomes "not responsive" - I am unable to close it down or kill the task in win10, the only solution is to restart my laptop, this really is unacceptable. What or why is this happening please ? Thunderbird used to have a smooth background update process - not now. ver 102.1.2
