this is a windows issue causing program fail, have you checked other programs to see if this is doing the same?
hi No other program crash when I unplug my monitors. This is a recent issue, not sure if it is or not since the last update.
PS: to clarify I am on OSX not Windows, so I guess you meant OSX windows.

Hi Mastap, Does the Mozilla Crash Reporter come up? If so,
- Open Thunderbird.
- Go to Help > Troubleshooting Information. That should open a new tab with info about your Thunderbird setup.
- Under "Crash Reports for the Last 3 Days" click on your latest crash report. That should take you to a web page starting with "https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/" and post the address of your latest crash report.
We can then look at the data specific to your crash and have a better idea of what is causing the problem.
perhaps bug 1201401 ?
Hi, I did submit the report through the crash reporte. Does this suffice?
Here is my crash report https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/0b65c3d2-7068-43c7-8cb7-b8ec00180810
That appear to be bug 1201401 See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1201401
A summary is that there a currently two suspected causes.
1. A bad HDMI cable connecting the external monitor 2. Different refresh rates on the two monitors. (Perhaps you could offer some information in regard to that).
What I do not see is any sort of workaround.
If other apps were crashing I would suspect my side, yet it is not the case. Only TB crashes.
What would help you help me here? The brand of my cables?
I will check the refresh rates when I plug in at the office tomorrow. Thanks
