Dan

Well I was able to solve the problem which was by the way that apparently the SM 2.58 is NOT compatible with 10.12.6 Mac IOS Sierra!

I downloaded SM 2.46 and added the old profile and this corrected things.

Thanks for your help.

I've had problems all day with opening SM 2.48. It took me literally most of the day to figure out what the solution was.

I have a MAC macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and it appears as if SM 2.48 isn't compatible with the Mac OS I am on.

To solve this I downloaded SM 2.46 (after saving my PROFILE) and everything works fine.

Does anyone know when this will be corrected?

Please post a crash id.

there was a problem with the address bok (OS X bug) in Eearly 52 Thunderbird releases. Might be that this one is or was also already present in 51 which is at 2.48 level. If yes the solution is unfortunately to wait for 2.49.1

I tried 2.48 on my Mini Mac including mail and it worked so not everyone seems to be affected.

I don't have any Crash ID

So I assume your Mini has the 10.12.6 Mac IOS Sierra on it correct?

It was a very long day as I tried for close to 8 hours to open e mails (old and new) but the only thing that worked was to get rid of 2.48 and download 2.46 again. Actually I have no idea why I even had 2.48 as I don't recall downloading it.

So yes I guess I'll have to wait for 2.49.1 and hope this problem I had yesterday is resolved!

Yes. 10.12.5 before. I knew of an address book problem in early TB 52 releases and specifically tested this to be sure that we do not release a dud. Looks like it didn't help :( I need to put 2 other mozilla changes in my local tree to test them for inclusion in 2.49.1. If someone wants a test release to see if the problem will be solved in 2.49.1 send me a pm with you email addy.

Thanks. I hope 2.49.1 will work with my Mac. When do you think it will be out?

Hi, I have EXACTLY the same problem. SM2.48 crashes every time I launch it. Going back to SM2.46 - that works fine
Does anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks
Chris

I just did an OS X en-US test build for 2.49.1 yesterday. The problem should be fixed in it by taking some patches which were fixed in later branches. Thunderbird already used them for TB 52. Anyone willing to take a test drive please shoot me a pm. This is a pure 64 bit build. I need to redo the config first to do an universal build. Lightning is included.

Building 2.49.1 will start soon but depending on the snafus we run into I won't give an estimate when it will be available.

Got a confirmation that my test build fixed a similar problem.

2.49.1 is currently building. en-US build should be usable already but may not be the final if we need to do additional config changes. But the final could always be installed over it.

Now at build 3. All platforms and languages are done and Lightning 5.4 from AMO should work fine. Probably the final but may still take some time. If someone wants to try it should be safe (using 2.49.1 for months now) but backup your old profile first.
