This problem has long shown its face in my application. It seems the
chrome launcher does not have support for Thunderbird. The fix is
tedious and I am yet to get it to work. Perhaps the devs put this in
place since they realized this themselves.

Noticed this too. I chalk it up to a new audio applet, which seems to
actually be part of the "notifications" if I'm not mistaken. Likely why
middle rolls do not work.
