Windows 7: New Email notification icon randomly missing

19 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 x64 Pro
New Email notification icon randomly missing

Some time a few months ago my email notification icon started behaving inconsistently. Sometimes it works; some times (usually) it doesn't. If it doesn't work when I first boot up it seem to not work until I reboot (and usually not then).

I'm running Thunderbird. (TB 8.0 now. Who knows what it was a couple of months ago.) In the Notifications Icon Area display Thunderbird is set to "Show only notifications" and has been that way for as long as I can remember.

Around the time it stopped working I had a hardware failure that necessitated a reinstallation of Windows. I think the notification was failing before the reinstallation but I can't be sure.

Is there anything I should be looking at on the Windows side of the notification interface (other than the notification customization panel)? Quite a TB users have reported this on the TB forum but nobody has found a solution. I don't know if any other email client programs have this problem.
