I have noticed with Daily build of today 60.a1 (2018-02-04), if you use the 'Add-on' menu from the top right global menu:
(Open Menu) -> Add-ons -> Add-ons

It hangs, it goes somewhere into modal mode and the only way, that I found to get out of it, is to kill the process.
Does this happen to anybody else ?

Does the sub-menu with a list of extensions appear, or show "No add-on settings found"?

It could be bug 1428082 Thunderbird Daily becomes unresponsive when Add-ons Manager opens after bug 1427407 landed which I filed, but the developers couldn't reproduce, so I Resolved Invalid.

It displays my extensions, it just does not let me click on anything, even closing the window.
To get to the add-on window, I can also do: ALT (key), from the menu bar: Tools->Add-ons
And that work fine.

I have also tried it from different machine (Laptop running win10) and same behaviour:
Open Menu -> Add-ons -> Add-ons
The add-ons window come up with the spinner still running and you cannot close Daily other than kill it through task-manager.

I have not tried with older build so I do not know how long it has been there.

That is the same behavior I see and reported in the bug. I first discovered using Daily 59.0a1 after bug 1427407 landed.

Could you add a comment to the bug report for bug 1428082? Thanks!

I just found that I cannot do 'View Source' any more on the nightly build. Can somebody check if 'View Source' still works for them ?
using daily: 60.0a1 (2018-02-18) (64-bit)
on windows 10: build 17101

Do you know a secret? For there to be a "next ESR" there has to a new release? :-)

67.

This current ESR went to 60 instead of 59 because Firefox needed more time to complete a GPO feature. Thunderbird of course followed suit.

There used to be several places. The "Releases Scheduling" page was usually wrong, schedules not met, and I have not been able to find it lately.

I use as a reference that one, sometimes two, weeks after a Firefox release update there might be a Thunderbird release.

Do you happen to know of a 'place'?
