Perhaps the cause is the same for your MimeDecoderWrite

This keeps biting me; I think it's related to Enigmail.

As far as I can tell this is about NSPR ForkAndExec (i.e. starting a new process using NSPR).

There is only one single place where Enigmail would use XPCOM to launch a separate process - and that's only if GnuPG 2.0.15 or older is used.

Any other processes are started useing posix_spawn from libc via js-ctypes. I dount think that this is directly related to Enigmail.

I keep seeing this. , etc. I see it when composing a new message, perhaps when Thunderbird is trying to auto-save a draft.

I've experienced a crash with this signature in Firefox, too.

sylvestre's bp-4a97a469-71ed-4b27-bd08-7cdc00170724 54.0b3

55 beta is out, so an open question is whether this happens with 55 or 56.
