Mailspring freezes with "libnotify-WARNING: Failed to connect to proxy"


Time and again, during scrolling through mails or reading them, the window freezes, and killing of mailspring is the only way to proceed. When started from a shell, messages like

(mailspring:41269): libnotify-WARNING **: 21:11:10.231: Failed to connect to proxy

appear. There is no proxy I’d be aware of, by the way.

Steps to reproduce the behavior:
Sadly enough, this problem occurs erratically. No way known to let it happen.

Expected Behavior



  • OS and Version: Manjaro Linux 22.0.0 Sikaris
    • Installation Method: From Manjaor AUR repository (source)
  • Mailspring Version: 1.10.7-5008ecc3
