Connection between Thunderbird & BirdieSync is cycling

Post by mikeduncan177 » Sun Apr 16, 2017 5:42 am

Thunderbird 52.0.0 and BirdieSync 3.1.0.0 beta 1 worked fine - no issues detected.

Thunderbird then did an automatic update to 52.0.1 and I noticed the following problems:
  • BirdieSync started using significant Processor resources and showing "Not Responding" errors.
  • Attempts to sync between Thunderbird and an iPhone failed.
  • The connection between Thunderbird and BirdieSync (as seen in toolbar in Thunderbird) was cycling between connected & not connected.
  • Status text showed:
    • Listing Address Book
    • Listing Calendar events
    • Connected to 127.0.0.1
    • Repeat cycle
I tried to generate a log for you, but the Archive Log menu item was low-lighted and unavailable.

Re-checked situation with this problem this morning and the issue that I saw last night is not occurring.
  • BirdieSync program not running, started it
  • Observed BirdieSync status bar in Thunderbird:
    • Status stated "Impossible to connect 127.0.0.1"
    • Clicked Connection button
    • Saw "Listing address books" etc. and then "Single source connected"
  • Was able to connect my iPhone and complete a sync successfully.
Processor usage by BirdieSync was never significant, as I saw last night when it was cycling the connection.

If I see this issue again, is there anything I can do to help/log what is going on?

Hello Mike,

Thank you for the detailed description of the problem. I had a look at the logs you sent to me. It may be caused by unwanted reconnections after the listing of all Thunderbird folders. I'll investigate to identify the reason of this behavior.
