Deleted Message Window Stays Open

Since the update to 102.2.22 a deleted message window doesn't close. It just stays there until I "X" on the upper right. For years now, whenever I deleted a message the next messaage in the selected folder appeared in the window. That no longer happens, it just stays there. But it does disappear from the list of messages and appears in the Trash folder. This happens for both gmail and yahoo mail messages.

This DOES NOT happen in troubleshooting mode. Then it works as it used to. I have only two extensions, Manually sort folders and MyPhoneExplorer. In normal mode I have disabled both but the problem still happens. Is there something else that troubleshooting mode does?

I also have this problem since updating, such that I can end up with many deleted message windows open which clutters the workspace. Is the advice to run in troubleshooting mode for the present?

I am using Windows 8.1 on this desktop and Windows 8.1 on a tablet computer. Thunderbird on both seem to act odd but in different ways. I was wondering if Thunderbird is neglecting Windows 8. I will have to upgrade this desktop to 11 but the tablet isn't compatible with Windows 11 so it will have to stay.

(1) Are you using Windows 8? (2) Does troubleshooting mode help? I haven't tried it. (3) Does it seem that messages with images might delete (and move to the next message) sometimes?
