Is there a way to compile Enigmail separately and then add it to thunderbird? I suspect that this could solve the issue. Ah, there it is:

Right, I tried comparing with the precompiled thunderbird-appmenu-bin just now, which crashes just the same for me. I experimented with safe mode and individual disabling of my extensions and was able to narrow it down to enigmail. As soon as that is enabled opening the composition window crashes thunderbird-appmenu. Not sure how to debug this further right now, and going without is not an option for me.

Instead of compiling I switched to thunderbird-appmenu-bin which works fine for me. No crashes.

After having switched to regular thunderbird again with the release of version 68.x I was happy to see there now seems to be an updated appmenu patch for 68.3.x - sadly after compiling everything seems to work well at first, but on opening a mail composition dialog window it segfaults. (A cursory look at the backtrace points to a problem in the interaction with, but that might be misleading)

Before I invest more time, does anyone else see the same behaviour? I reverted to using the regular thunderbird build for now.

Updated. Bin-version:

Ah, totally forgot I could just recompiled it... I was so fixated on a new version that I was blind to this obvious solution. I'll try to recompile it. Tomorrow I'll see how it went.

@michaldybczak, have you tried recompiling the package again?

michaldybczak commented on 2019-11-24 10:32

The inevitable day has come. An update made the thunderbird-appemnu not working anymore:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/thunderbird/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

I tried to symlink libs but in the end there was an error in the reading new lib so it won't work.

There is no way I stop system updates for a half year or more because of thunderbird so I had to switch to repo version - bye bye global menus :(

Since 60.8.0 seems to last forever (newer versions don't build, maybe new patch is needed but this will be ready in 6 or more months, dependently which thunderbird version will Ubuntu 20-04 will ship with), you can download my, already compiled package here:!rF41SCZA!FJeGOLbIxzL7XQzqK6afY3LwxzRSZkiXsFJTDYp_oIQ

Or, as @nikatar said, you can download the binary file from his gitlab page:
