gmail and Error code: ssl_error_bad_mac_read

Beginning last week I am getting alot of error messages when Thunderbird pop3's gmail. Sometimes Thunderbird works just fine and sometimes I get spates of error messages like: Error code: ssl_error_bad_mac_read

Any suggestions on what is going on and how to fix it - I have been using Thunderbird for years with gmail with no problems and have not changed my configuration

    I have the same problem - with IMAP. The problem came up during an "auto-save" while writing an email. Trying out different situations brought up that while only writing text everything's fine - the problem occurs attaching some files (and saving afterwards), in my case one *.jpg and a few *.pdf - in total about 1MB....
    Is there anyone who has an idea about this? Seems like no one's taking care about this....

    Moreover, what's really annoying is that with each error message, the client crashs and there's no way to get back your email....
