Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1305912
Thunderbird after long inactivity becomes rather sluggish, non-responsive at times...
Last modified: 2017-08-08 08:45:32 EDT
Description of problem:
I leave my desk and go away for longer time (I cannot only tell if there is a minimum time after which it happens), eg over night, and the laptop does not suspend, does not go to sleep. Only locks screen after a while.
When I am back working everything seems working perfectly fine except Thunderbird and Firefox. Both programs sort of have this moments when I see no response, I have to wait a moment for the program to come back, which it does but only for some time and then again.
Thunderbird sometimes times out and I get the box "wait or kill it"
I'd be happy to attach some logs, debug info if you would like to instruct me what to get, how to get it.

Steps to Reproduce:
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Thunderbird 52 (currently in update testing) is bringing some improvement regarding performance (at least for me). Could you please report if you see any for your case?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 24 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 2 (two) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 24. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 24 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 24 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-08-08. Fedora 24 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
