due you use the enigmail package from experimental or installed locally?
I assume you use a local installed enigmail addon. Thunderbird uses
since version 59 a different addon interface, only webextension is now

Unfortunately I need to confirm this behavior on my local setup no
matter if I use the enigmail package from experimental or a local
installed package.

Yes, the debugging will be slightly different now. For this the starting
wrapper needs to be adjusted again and for now the calls need to be done
manually to get backtraces.

$ sudo apt install thunderbird-dbgsym
$ RUST_BACKTRACE=1 gdb /usr/lib/thinderbird/thunderbird
(gdb) run
(gdb) thread applly all bt

I've done this yesterday quickly but didn't have seen a catch to get a
clued what's going wrong here. So I've no idea if thunderbird or
enigmail itself is causing this segfault. On the other hand thunderbird
isn't allowed to crash anyway.

If possible append a backtrace as file please.
