I've been having the roughest time with Thunderbird 3.x (first 3.0.5 and
currently 3.1.1). It crashes often and corrupts the SSL certificate
database (cert8.db) when it does. Fortunately, I have a backup copy
that I copy back into place when this happens.
Sometimes, it will delete my personal certificate during the course of
operation. If T-bird doesn't crash shortly thereafter, I have to quit
T-bird, copy the backup cert8.db into place, and restart T-bird.
The instability was even worse when "mozilla-lightning" was enabled at
build time. I turn if off (and turn EnigMail on) with
I never had crashing problems with Thunderbird 2.x (or even 1.x).
I suspect the instability/crashing problems may be related to cruft
accumulated with my long-lived mail folders across 3 major versions of
T-bird and an OS/CPU change (started on MacOS X/ppc with T-bird 1.x,
then 2.x, then moved to NetBSD/i386 with T-bird 2.x). On a NetBSD/i386
system where I started with 2.x, 3.x seems to behave itself, except for
Since 2.x and continuing with 3.x, I cannot create a new profile and
import my personal certificate. It always reports "PKCS12 operation
failed for unknown reason." I can import my certificate as an "Other
People's Certificates" and I have no problem adding additional CA Root
These are all probably upstream issues for Mozilla.
Is anyone else experiencing similar problems with Thunderbird 3.x?
