    Using Thunderbird, when I click on a hyperlink in an email it either takes an extremely long time (>10 min.) to open the browser (same in Firefox and in IE8). While I'm waiting for it to open the browser window Thunderbird is occupied w/the task and can't be used. This just started recently. I'm using version 2.0.0.23 (20090812).

    Hello,

    You have the latest version installed, that's good.

    Is your computer slow to open up a new web browser only when you click a link any other time?

    If it's slow all the time then what do your memory statistics look like?

    Which anti-virus, firewall, and spyware detection software do you have installed?

    Silly question, but have you rebooted recently?

    Skip to the "Silly question". Rebooted, now seems to work fine. It should have been a silly question but I've been guilty of not rebooting in similar situations many times. :eek: Thanks Raymond for asking the right questions.
    :thanks:Tim
