Anyone else experiencing Thunderbird 11.0 process stays running after closing the window.

I can't restart Thunderbird until I manually kill the process.

/usr/lib64/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin

This appears to be an old regression, judging from Google searches.

I have even more issues with it. I need to close firefox in order to start thunderbird or thunderbird bitch that is already started, then I can start firefox while thunderbird is running but not always, sometimes firefox refuse to start becaue of thunderbird...

I've seen this kind of thing happen when:

1 - You're in firefox, and do a "send link" when thunderbird isn't already started.

2 - You're in thunderbird, and do a "view link" when firefox isn't already started.

The second one started hangs out after use until the first one is also ended.

The safest way around this is to make sure you start both from your session, so you're never starting one from the other. Both will happily use existing sessions of the other.

I never had this problem before a recent update to 11.0

I experience it if I simply start Thunderbird, read a couple of emails and 'close the window'.

I use Fluxbox as my window manager.

I have the same problem with Thunderbird since the update to 11.0 (or 11.0-r1). I'm running LXDE.

Whilst the main UI of Thunderbird has closed, it appears the process that is lying around in the background continues to retrieve email.

I say this because I noticed that when I terminated this background process and ran the UI, emails had already been downloaded between the last time I closed the UI and this time, prior to the new instance 'retrieving new email'.

I am almost certain that Thunderbird is not 'retrieving new email' when I close the UI, to trigger this situation.

Just an observation.

Edit: I closed my Thunderbird window this morning and it continued to retrieve emails during the day, much to my consternation, on my mobile.

11.0.1 seems to have fixed the problem. At least after a few start/stop cycles.
