Public bug reported:

For the last couple of weeks my thunderbird install has been close to
unusable. Constant frequent hangs, blocking input 2/3rds of the time.
Which is kind of odd since there have been no updates this cycle.

However I tried with a fresh profile, and as soon as I enabled
Lightning, those hangs started again. Disabled again and things seem to
be running ok again. Normally I would just say meh, bad plugin, but isnt
lightning supposed to be officially supported plugin and why did this
only break a couple of weeks ago, when I can't see any updates to the
obvious components that might affect it.
