Thunderbird is slow when loading contacts

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by anthonycurran1, Aug 2, 2005.

  1. When writing and email and i type in the contact name in in the "TO"
    field or the "CC" field then Thunderbird comes to a halt and does not
    respond for over 10 minutes. Checking with the task manager, I can see
    that Thunderbird is using 96+% of the processor time, this does not
    sound right and it should not be happening. I have 6 separate address
    books which i have imported from various email accounts and the total
    number of addresses is around 200. I expect Thunderbird is trying to
    find a match in the address books, but it should not take such a high
    percentage of the processor load and make the PC grind to a halt for in
    excess of 10 minutes. i\It should be noted that the default is the
    personal address book and that this one only has around 20 of the most
    used email addresses

    is there a setting or a way to configure thunderbird so i can get better
    performance

    thanks in advance Anthony

    If the problem goes away when Thunderbird is run in safe mode, it could
    be the fault of an extension you installed.

    What is your OS, CPU speed and amount of RAM?
