Bug Description

Thunderbird 1:52.2.1+build1-0ubuntu1 fails to build in Artful. :

The new upstream release (52.3.0) may fix the issue.

thunderbird builds on armhf now. s390x is the only release architecture where it doesn't build.

summary: - FTBFS on armhf and s390x in Artful
+ thunderbird FTBFS on 390x in Artful

If it is still a problem, are you still interested in finding a solution to this bug?
If you are, could you run the following (only once):
