Mozilla Thunderbird 52.1.0 Doesn't Load. Complains about libcurl.so


I filed a bug at Mozilla Bugzilla because when I try and load Thunderbird, instead of the Mail window (or others) I get the Mozilla Crash Reporter.

If I type 'thunderbird' by itself I get the following:
Code:
[lilzebra@nightowl ~]$ thunderbird

[calBackendLoader] Using Thunderbird's builtin libical backend

Initialiazing TrackerBird...
TrackerSparql initialized successfully
Tracker Plugin initialized successfully
ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 20563
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead
They said that it is not a bug they cannot fix it, and that it is an issue with Fedora.

I can get Thunderbird to load and open my Yahoo Mail INBOX _if_ I use 'thunderbird --safe-mode'

Doing that gives me my INBOX, but I cannot load Addons.

Perhaps I should be filing this with RedHat.Bugzilla.org?

Yes, both are.

Version 7.47.10-1

I installed via yumex-dnf or Software Centre. I can't remember now.

maybe it is addon specific?
can you load NO addons at all?
does the error go away when you uninstall some specific addon?

After Deactivating the Tracker addon, Thunderbird loads now.

Soooo...it must have something to with Tracker.

The addon Lightnig calendar addon installed and doesn't stop Thunderbird from loading.

I did file a bug report at Bugzilla.Redhat on the weekend. Hopefully it'll be fixed. It'd be interesting to see my e-mails come up in Tracker searches.

i think it wouldbe more helpful to tell the addon developers about this.
maybe also thunderbird proper.
