Mozilla Thunderbird Closed Wrongly
The Mozilla Thunderbird installed in your computer might crash abruptly while sending, receiving, and opening or recovering mails if the web browser was closed wrongly, or in other words was ended incorrectly. This may happen mostly when your Mozilla Thunderbird e-mail client functioning is disputed by an unscheduled power failure or a computer restart by the user. When your Mozilla Thunderbird crashes, you can send the crash report to Mozilla. Your Windows OS can also prompt you to send the crash report. This can help you to fix the crash issues in upcoming versions of Mozilla Thunderbird. You can fix the crash issue by closing Mozilla Thunderbird and restarting it again.
Trash Bin Issue
Another reason of crashing Mozilla Thunderbird when sending, receiving or opening or recovering mails is the Trash bin problem. This may happen, if you have failed to empty the Trash bin on a timely basis. Accumulation of a large amount of un-deleted mails in the Trash folder can create conflicts issues and slow down Mozilla Thunderbird as a whole and lead to the crash. To fix the issue, you can restart your Mozilla Thunderbird and clear all the items that you have in your trash bin.
The presence of malware issues in your computer can critically affect the performance of your computer and other applications running on your computer. Your computers RAM and other memory is used up and you may not find enough RAM to run the Mozilla Thunderbird smoothly. This can eventually lead the application to crash. To fix the issue, you should install a good antivirus program and then scan and fix all the malware issues prevailing in your computer after updating it.
