Big Thunderbird problems after Ubuntu bugfix update

Asked by Hartmut Hoffnung on 2012-04-28

Thunderbird 11.0.1 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64bit
After a large update of the system Thunderbird (I don't know if it has been updated too) has problems all over.
1. the error console has lots of entries here is the very first:
   Timestamp: 28.04.2012 09:13:48
   Error: this.asyncConnection is null
   Source File: resource:///modules/gloda/datastore.js
   Line: 1406
2. the add-ons manager is stuck with the message "loading"

and a whole bunch more of that stuff!

It is very disappointing to run a regular (bugfix) update with this result!!!

Does anybody at the Ubuntu Team feel responsible?

Thank you for your help.

Have you tried disabling addons?

Yes, I disabled addons. It doesen't make any difference in the behaviour of thunderbird.

In my opinion thunderbirds initialisation during startup fails. This results in strange symptoms at all ends.
- login to the providers fails
- base features of thunderbird are in english addon parts like lightning are in german (garman package is installed)
- the layout of the context menue on the left side, folderlike style, missis the frame, has wrong fontsize, ..
- etc.

Can you help with this problem?
