    Thunderbird and Firebird segfaulting on startup

    Hi,

    there are several bug reports about this, but I would like to ask if there is any quick fix, as it is really a problem not being able to use thunderbird to check mail accounts. Setting any env var did not helped (like described).

    Since the last 14.04 glibc update a few days ago Thunderbird and Firebird segfault at startup:

    Code:
    ubucatz@ubuntu:~$ firefox
    
    
    (process:3489): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
    
    
    (firefox:3489): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::sm-connect after class was initialised
    
    
    (firefox:3489): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::show-crash-dialog after class was initialised
    
    
    (firefox:3489): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::display after class was initialised
    
    
    (firefox:3489): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::default-icon after class was initialised
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    
    ubucatz@ubuntu:~$ thunderbird
    
    
    (process:3503): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
    
    
    (thunderbird:3503): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::sm-connect after class was initialised
    
    
    (thunderbird:3503): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::show-crash-dialog after class was initialised
    
    
    (thunderbird:3503): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::display after class was initialised
    
    
    (thunderbird:3503): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property GnomeProgram::default-icon after class was initialised
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)



    Thanks for your attention,
    Ubucatz
