Thunderbird strange behavior...

    Never had this happen before: I had a couple Mozilla (1.7.11) browser
    windows open and 3 T-Bird (1.06) windows open including one where I
    was writing a long e-mail. I called up one of the browser windows and
    was looking for somethingi needed for the e-mail. When I went back
    to restore the message composition window from the task bar, nothing
    happened for a long time, so I clicked on several other task bar
    buttons and eventually a browser window appeared, but the message
    composition window taskbar button disappeared. I was able to bring up
    a Thunderbird inbox window and write a new e-mail and send it. Shortly
    after that the original e-mail composition window, which had no longer
    been showing on the taskbar, suddenly opened up, but this was about 10
    minutes or so after I had last clicked on the taskbar to open it.

    Should I just chalk this up to a freak event? Are their memory leak
    problems associated with T-Bird? I didn't check the memory, but task
    manager was showing low cpu usage the whole time.

    The only answer I have for you is to learn to Save your typed messages
    often. Hitting CTRL+S is a quick shortcut key, since your fingers are
    already on the keyboard.

    Um, why use Mozilla 1.7.11 and Thunderbird? Wouldnt Firefox 1.0.7 be a
    better 'fit' with Thunderbird? OR, use the email component already
    available in Mozilla 1.7.11 instead of Thunderbird.

    Or wait a bit until TB 1.5 comes out, which has an auto-save option
    (also not perfect, while during the save, you temporarily can't type).

    I had adopted Firefox and Thunderbird a long time ago but abandoned FF
    because of repeated disappearance of history files/auto complete
    entries and other quirky behavior (1.06 and 1.07). I suppose I should
    migrate my mail settings back into Mozilla.

    Will use the Ctrl S feature now.
