I have a similar problem. I'm adding what may be more details to aid in solving. I use LDAP for authentication and I have nscd installed. Thunderbird has been working without issue until yesterday when I changed hosts in nsswitch.conf to use ldap as shown below;

Changed:
hosts: files dns [NOTFOUND=return]
to the following;
hosts: files ldap dns [NOTFOUND=return]

This change resulted in seg faults with no other warning. I was able to create an alternate user profile and that would work, but when trying to get back to the current user, the seg fault would return. Once I changed nsswitch.conf back to using dns, the app starts without issue.

My release;
