Troubleshooting Thunderbird

This entry was posted by on Wednesday, 6 October, 2010 at

Thunderbird is crapping up and you need to troubleshoot. Wouldn’t it be nice to see what’s going on?

At the commandline, do:

export NSPR_LOG_MODULES=imap:5
export NSPR_LOG_FILE=/tmp/imap.log
tail -f /tmp/imap.log

This sets Thunderbird’s logging environment variables (logging imap in this case), starts Thunderbird and then shows and follows the log file.
