Just in the past few days, my thunderbird immediately crash and refuses to start on my Ubuntu 14.04 box (xfce, with LDAP). It gives the following error
fangq@taote:~$ thunderbird ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 7312 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...
I can't be sure, but this likely started after an update.
If I use "sudo thunderbird", it can start without a problem, but I can't see my emails (apparently).
Strangely, I can x2go to another 14.04 machine, with the same version of thunderbird, I could start thunderbird without an error. Both machines share the same home directory/user account and the email folders. I don't know why it refuses to start on one but not the other.
the strace dump can be found here
Please help! can't get work done without a working thunderbird. thanks
