Thunderbird running slowly on Windows 10

Documenting a Thunderbird fix found a few months after Windows 10 was first launched.

As that time Thunderbird was performing very poorly with frequent lock-ups.

After much googling it appeared the Windows Search indexer was at fault, by turning off the option Tools | Options | Advanced | General | System Integration | Allow Windows Search all the problems went away.!
