Am I mistaken or did I recently see in here someone asking how to speed up the loading of Thunderbird from the desktop? Only I would like to make mine quicker too

Thunderbird loads up very quickly just from Quick Launch.

Just a tip for anyone who sets Thunderbird to check for messages every x or xx minutes - if you are offline and TB is open, it goes online automatically to do so. Best to disable the feature if you don't want or require it.

Could be a nuisance for those who, like me, have dialup and originally missed the occasional anticipated voice call as a result. I'd enabled it as it had been used successfully with OE.

There was an extension that allows both Firefox and Thunderbird to be minimised to the system tray, although this extension does not appear on the offical mozilla sites.

I did try the extension but it required a .dll file to be installed and it didn't work for me. Though I'm sure if I'd tried a little longer it would have worked.

I guess I must have dreamt it but I seem to remember the advice was to right click on icon, go to Properties and type 'prefetch1' on the end of the Target.

I do click on the quick launch but that is slow too. Maybe my computer is just slow.

Prefetch is part of the Windows operating system in which it tries to preload programs before you are ready to use them....:-)
