    Hi All,

    For some reason, every time I start or restart my Macbook Pro, Thunderbird sees fit to launch, and is the only application that feels it needs to start up every time I boot/re-boot my system.

    I don't remember ever setting up Thunderbird to do this. Is there a "startup programs" setting somehwere in OS X that I'm not aware of, that I might have accidentally tripped off? Is there a way to turn this off? While it's not a particularly annoying behavior, I don't always want to check my e-mail right away.

    My apologies for sounding like a noob. I've been using Macs on and off since System 6.0.4. I've spent quite a bit of time using OS X though I haven't made it my regular OS of choice until recently. I thought I had plenty of experience using Macs, but this one thing escapes me. :)

    ...or simply right/ctrl-click the Thunderbird icon in the Dock and uncheck the Open at Login option...
