I’m using Thunderbird 78.11.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 21.04. When I start thunderbird, one orange dot appears next to it’s icon when the main window opens.
When I compose a new email, a second orange dot appears when the compose message window opens.
If I discard the email without sending it, the 2nd orange dot diappears when the window disappears.
However, if I “SEND” the composed email, a new small popup window appears with a progress bar as the email is sent, and then the window disappears, BUT, the 2nd orange dot does not go away.
If I send more emails, I get a new persistent orange dot for every email sent.
Normally I wouldn’t complain about a wierd gui issue, except that this issue causes a problem after I close thunderbird. When Thunderbird is closed, if there is one or more “phantom” dots, I am no longer able to open thunderbird by left clicking on the icon, and if I try and open the right click menu the menu opens and then “freezes” open.
[I have an image of the open/frozen menu as well, but the forum won’t let new uses include two images in a post…]
The only way I’ve found to resolve this issue is to log out and then log back in.
Any suggestions for things to check? Is this something specific to my setup, or can others replicate this?
