Since version 0.4.6 the Issue #76 reappeared.
When using the option to start Thunderbird minimized to the system tray, it is not possible to open / maximize Thunderbird by calling a shortcut to Thunderbird.

However, when clicking on the icon in the tray the maximization works. Also after minimizing Thunderbird to the tray again, the shortcut starts working.

I am using Gentoo Linux with KDE 4.10.5 and Thunderbird 17.07

Hi, here is the problem I'm can reproduce:

  1. start Thunderbird with the start application hidden to tray set: TB starts hidden
  2. call thunderbird -firetrayShowHide

What I see:
TB is still hidden.

What I should see:
TB should be shown

Is this what you are describing ?

I think I know what the problem is. Will try to work on it soon.

@tillschaefer

Does ef30cd1 fix the problem ?

@tillschaefer

Its partially fixed for me:

  1. When using the -firetrayShowHide option -> OK
  2. still not working when simply calling Thunderbird.

I have a shortcut to Thunderbird.

  • when i call it the first time Thunderbird starts minimized. -> OK
  • calling it a second time: nothing happens. -> NOT OK, should show Thunderbird

You may argue, that i have to use the firetrayShowHide option, but if i choose another way it is working:

  • call Thunderbird the first time: Thunderbird starts minimized. -> OK
  • showing / maximizing Thunderbird by clicking th icon -> OK
  • minimizing Thunderbird to tray -> OK
  • calling Thunderbird a second time: showing Thunderbird -> OK

Therefore there is a inconsistency. I think it is the best if just calling Thunderbird shows it, whenever it is minimized to tray. This allows to use the same shortcut for starting and maximizing.
