Just noted: opening the Preferences dialog also kills Thunderbird.

another update: I can save attachments, but if I open them from Thunderbird it crashes immediately

OK, based on a suggestion from hairy_palms on ubuntuforums, I switched from a pixmap GTK+ theme (Crux) back to the default Human theme. The problems described below go away, Thunderbird functions normally.

Here's a recap of the problems:

1. select a message, click Reply, thunderbird hangs
2. click the Write button, thunderbird hangs
3. double-click a message, click Reply, thunderbird crashes
4. open Preferences, thunderbird hangs
5. open an attachment, thunderbird crashes


hang = frozen, partially updated windows
crash = gone, disappears from desktop and taskbar

again, pixmap themes seem to be the cause of the problem.

hi there,
I also suffer of the same issue. However changing the theme (System->Preferences->Appearance) from a custom one back to standard "human" seems to be a workaround for the problem.
