Re: thunderbird 52.9 unusable, no debug or error messages

TB is also hanging in RAM after closing,
I have to use
# killall thunderbird

TB seems to get stuck in gpg or trying to load a website via web-browser (firefox int his case)
TB will have at least 3 processes running & using CPU, and killing one wont help, I have to killall
