Sync makes TB hang for a while
« on: March 04, 2017, 02:27:17 AM »
Hi there,

I recently migrated computers, and now gcontactsync takes a while to sync, and while it's syncing, TB becomes unresponsive.  I've read other threads about the DBs becoming corrupted.  Any suggestions for how I might resolve this?  Thanks!

This is typically related to the synchronized address book being very slow (the format used by Thunderbird is outdated).  Could you disable sync with that address book, setup a new address book with the same sync settings, and sync?  Is it faster or still slow?
