  • Here is what I've done. I've added the Minimize On Start and Close add-on in my Thunderbird:

    • Start Thunderbird
    • Click on the Tools Menu
    • Click on addons
    • Click Get addons
    • Enter Minimize
    • Look for Minimize On Start and Close 1.3.2
    • Download and restart Thunderbird

    enter image description here

    Once that's done, just add Thunderbird to startup applications, and you're set.
