but this is currently and has been off forever.
I also can look at the add-ons. I only have Enigmail (for GNUPG),
AdblockPlus, Remove duplicates, and English dictionary. I also have
Thunderbrowse turned on (I thought I had it disabled), but I uninstalled
it. I don't think that any of these are the culprit. As I did mentioned
before while selecting a new message, if it is signed, it can take some
time, but that is a known issue that I choose to live with. All of
these addons have been installed prior to upgrading to Fedora 13.
