[Thunderbird] Thunderbird suddenly opening two instances

Running the latest version of TB with Lightening Calendar add-on. This has been working fine until the last few days. Now, all of a sudden, when I start TB it is opening two separate instances - one with the Calendar tab showing and one without. I have two TB tabs showing in the taskbar - clicking on one tab brings up TB with the calendar tab visible, clicking on the other tab brings up TB without the calendar tab visible. If I close one tab, TB completely closes. If I look in Task Manager there is only ONE instance of TB showing.

I have not installed any new add-ons and have changed nothing in my system.

Anybody any idea why this has suddenly started happening or how I can fix it?

You could try fixing it by using the Profile Manager and letting Tb rewrite the links to the Profile folder & Program.

I had the same problem......while Thunderbird is open, press alt-F4.....that closes the extra instances and prevents it in the future.

Awesome. Thanks! Alt + F4 fixed it for me too.
