ThunderbirdPortable RC2

Searched and didn't find anything on this....

I'm not sure if this is a Thunderbird issue or a ThunderbirdPortable issue, but the little twirling dealie (that's a technical term) that spins when Thunderbird is thinking (in the upper right hand corner of the window) never stops spinning after you check your mail once. The progress bar at the bottom which displays how far along you are with checking your mail also never disappears and shows 0%.

Not sure what else to say about the problem. Let me know if you need more info.

Activity Indicator / Throbber

It's technical name is the Activity Indicator.
It's well-known name is the throbber.
You might be able to find a bug or something but not using the former. Everyone calls it a throbber, even the internal prefs. (browser.throbber.url)

throbber....yes. thanks. I should have known.
ok, well, I thought I'd throw it out there, because I'd never seen it do that before.


It is not your audience's responsibility to puzzle out what you intended to say; it is your responsibility to express yourself so clearly that no one with a modicum of intelligence and good will could possibly mistake your meaning.
