New Thunderbird 17.0.2 freezes every time within a few seconds on Mac OS 10.6.8. I have been using it since version 5 and up to version 17.0.1 it was working properly. Tried to open in safe mode (holding Option key) and disabled all add-ons, it does not fix the problem.
It happens every time I start the application, since last week, such that it is impossible to use Thunderbird. It freezes even before I am able to do anything, and the only way to close it is by killing the application (force quit).
I would very much appreciate any help or guidance.
