VI freezes TB for many seconds

Reported by: virtualidentity@… Owned by:
Version: 0.9.4 Keywords:


I happily use this extension for a few years now but recently (I couldn't say since when exactly) it freezes thunderbird for many seconds (more than 30, sometimes more than 60) when I switch from one message to another. If I disable VI, everything goes back to normal. I tried disabling everything in VI's config dialogs with no effect. Since nobody else seems affected, I guess it comes from my config. What should I reset/remove to do a clean reinstall of Vi ?

If I can help in any way to debug this, please let me know. Linux/Ubuntu? 12.04, TB 15.0+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1, Vi 0.9.4

the config is partially stored in the abaout:config-area. Just open Preferences->Advanced->General->Config Editor and (after deinstalling virtual identity) remove (rightclick->reset) all entries beginning with "extensions.virtualIdentity"

The rest of the config is found in your thunderbird profile directory, in the file "virtualIdentity.rdf". You can simply rename this file for a quick test.

Hope this fixes your issues, if you can provide a screenshot of the options, maybe I can solve some issue this way.
