Re: Screen going black when using Thunderbird

Austinian, jpegman and Cariboou,

Thank you very much for confirming that you haven't had any screen blinking problem with your copy of Thunderbird. Very helpful to know. Guess I'll have to see if my screen blinking problem happens when I'm not using Tbird.

If it was just the screen blinking black, then I might wonder if my graphics controller, monitor cable or monitor is starting to have an intermittent problem. But since the second time it happened Tbird actually lost 2/3 of the text, I don't see how any of those things could cause loss of data within Tbird.

Tbird ran fine after the screen blinking without my having to close and open Tbird again. I copied the same template into a compose email, made the few edits to it and sent the email fine with no problem. I haven't restarted my PC and have been using it all day with no further problem.

PS: Thanks to johnnyandedgar for his input also.

Scratching my head for now,
