VL-7-RC2 Thunderbird change or add usenet locks up.
« on: July 17, 2011, 09:20:04 pm »

I don't know where to enter this query but as I only noticed it in VL-7-RC2 I will try here.

I am running VL 7-RC2 and I like it quite well.
I have run most Vector Linuxs and never ran accross my problem before. It may be that I never tried to add more news groups
to the account so it might just be a Thunderbird problem. If it is, then I don't know where to go for help.

Now I installed Thunderbird 3.1.7 and mostly it is fine. In Thunderbird, I use the the news group account as well as email.
I select subscribe and add the groups I want. This works as it always has.
I discover that I have left a news group out of my list. I try to enter subscribe again and this causes
Thunderbird to lock up so that I have to quit it and the only way I can do a resubscrie to and add the missed usenet group
is to remove the whole usenet group account and start over. This is not great. If anyone can set me straight on what
to do I will appreciate it.
LINUX: no virus, no worms, no spyware, so why Microsoft?
