I was hoping that Bug #342784, “File > Quit hangs tb if expunge inbox on exit is set”, being closed in the 188.8.131.52 release of Thunderbird would have solved my issue of Thunderbird sucking all CPU cycles after being shut down, but it looks like it’s still there. I’ve been hoping for this to get fixed since 1.5 was released.
The duplicate feed items issue hasn’t been fixed either, and I’m thinking this ‘hanging process’ problem could also be a symptom of TB choking on the feeds, possibly the password protected LiveJournal ones. Guess I’m gonna have to try and find a proper RSS reader.
P.S.: I just installed BlogBridge, and I’m liking it!
