comment How can I view the HTML of a Thunderbird e-mail?
There is a far better way IMO. Insert-->HTML, which actually also allows you to view and edit the email in HTML as described more fully in my answer.

comment Can I launch a URL in browser, from scheduler, unless the URL is already open in a tab in the default browser
Well, there are only so many browsers that are popularly used. IE, Firefox, Chrome, ... If there isn't a general purpose method for enumerating child windows (at the Windows API level) for a browser, you can always special case the one or two that might be different. But I'm not looking for a programming solution here. I was hoping for a command-line utility that can identify that a browser tab might exist. Tasklist almost did the trick, but just didn't go deep enough for my use.

comment Can I launch a URL in browser, from scheduler, unless the URL is already open in a tab in the default browser
Thanks for teaching me what an XY Problem is. Never new it had a name. No, I don't have control over the web page and don't want to get into iframe'ing it or writing much code. I was wondering if there might be something useful to use off the shelf, rather than build it on my own.

Rewrote the question. Trying to keep in within the context of this site.

Almost there, but not quite. Works fine if the current tab in my browser is the one I'm looking for, but if there are multiple tabs in the browser and the one I want to know exists, but is not the selected tab, I don't think I can find it with this tool.

comment Thunderbird keeps freezing
You might want to see bug 1083233 in bugzilla. I have been having this problem and have documented various attempts to corner when it happens, but it isn't just when adding attachments, even though that seems to trigger it more frequently. Like you mentioned here, it happens kind of randomly doing different things. I can just be typing in a message and it kicks off a hang for 30 seconds. Can it be auto-saving an unsent message and we just thing it's mostly random? Got me.
