Limit Thunderbird to only one instance running at a time?

    Is there any way to limit Thunderbird (1.0.3) to only run one instance
    of itself?

    In other words, what I want is: if I have TB already running and try to
    start it again - either by dbl clicking on the icon or Start > Programs
    instance of it won't start.

    Can this be done?

    I sometimes dbl click on the newsgroup name underneath the nntp acct and
    this starts a new instance TB and a new connection to my ISP's nntp
    server - which then causes me to exceed my ISP's max connections. Once
    that happens, I have to wait about an hour for the connection at the
    nntp server end to time out and let me reconnect.

    If I could configure TB to not start a new instance of itself, that
    problem would go away.

    I'm not sure if it'll work, but try the No New Window on Double Click
