Thunderbird crashes on exit
 
Hi,

I have a new install of Slackware64 13.37 on my workhorse PC, an old AMD64.

Everything works quite nicely, except Thunderbird 14.0, which displays the crash reporter everytime on exit. I tried after manually deleting ~/.thunderbird, but to no avail. After googling a bit, seems like this is a recurring problem.

Any idea? I'm now at the point of seriously considering a migration to Seamonkey Browser & Mail, which seem much more stable and don't seem to give in to the new update frenzy.

Edit --> Preferences --> Advanced --> General --> submit performance info. Remove the check in that checkbox.
Does that help?

The checkbox is already unchecked in TB's default configuration.

I went back to TB 3.1.9, which is the version that ships with the stock Slackware 13.37. Heck of a regression, but hey, it works. I even managed to find the relevant translation XPI for that version. A real treasure hunt.

Not only is my problem not fixed, but now, Firefox (latest update) is also crashing all the time. Crap.

Is it the KDE crash reporter that appears when Thunderbird or Firefox crashes? The problem might be KDE related.

Try to run:

firefox -safe-mode

thunderbird -safe-mode

Also look at this:http://askubuntu.com/questions/14700...rbird-crashing

I don't think so, since KDE isn't installed on this machine. I'm running Robby Workman's Xfce 4.8. But there's a virtue in this. I'm currently (re)discovering the Seamonkey suite for web browsing and mail (and nothing besides that, since I mainly use Vim for web development and irssi for IRC :D). It's not as "sexy" as FF & TB, but as far as I can tell, it does the job quite good. I guess I will adopt it at least for a little while.
