With this "versionitis" of thunderbird, the program is in fact worse than ever.
Another one I found. Right now, I'm working offline, no internet. Yet, when
reading stored email,
Thunderbird is asking for my master password. I say "NO", cancel. A minute
later I'm asked again.
No, Again, No. After that, about every second, again and again. WHY? There is
no network, it can not
connect anywhere to load anything! Finally, it is silent.

It is not the first time I see this master password madness, usually in
Firefox: it is impossible to
say "NO", because it asks again and again so that you can not work.

And it doesn't say what it wants the password for, either.

I have Thunderbird 12.0.1 on PCLOS, and something probably earlier on XP, and in the
last two days I have been pestered to put in a password, even tho nothing has changed.
I have not updated either one. (I don't have access to XP right now--it's on this same
machine that I usually use for Linux--but since I haven't booted into XP for some time,
except this evening, I'd guess that T/B in XP is at least 2 revs behind.) So whatever is
causing the problem may not be due to the version, but to something that the 'net sent
over to T/B, and maybe it's just appearing in your system after you disconnected the net.
Time will tell whether the problem will go away or not.
