reverting to TB beta 36.0 fixes this
I installed Earlybird 38.0a2 (2015-02-27) on an OSX Yosemite system, and could not reproduce this bug.
Last week I also saw this problem some days on Nightly builds. There were also lots of mozitest fails and OS X related backouts on TreeHerder. However it was solved somehow. I haven't been building lastly the v38 when it was on Nightly, so I didn't see it then.
nomis101, can you be sure to test this when you test 38 beta?
tried yesterday - cannot find a 38 beta - only 37.0b1 or 39.0a1 or 39.0a2 (30 March). Tried all of them. 37.0b1 works fine, all the other don't. They show again same problem. Reproduced on MacMini/OsX 10.10.2 (UK version) and MacBookAir2011UK OSX 10.10.3beta
(In reply to Wayne Mery (:wsmwk, use Needinfo for questions) from comment #9) > nomis101, can you be sure to test this when you test 38 beta? I've tested this with 38.0b1 and it works fine for me. Build ID: 20150401012718. Tested on Yosemite 10.10.2. Maybe it only occurs under certain circumstances?
Seen on latest trunk build yesterday. The menu Earlybird (or Daily or Thunderbird, or whatever) is a feature exclusive of the OS X operating system which includes menu items found on other categories in the other suppoerted operating systems. That is the reason I am changing it to OS Integration.
I have the same issue with Thunderbird 38.0.1 on OS X 10.10.3. I have the following suspicious message in the system log during TB startup: 12.06.15 23:38:40,519 Thunderbird: GetDYLDEntryPointWithImage(/System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/Current/AppKit,_NSCreateAppKitServicesMenu) failed. This may be of interest because the "ServicesMenu" is normally part of the "Thunderbird" menu on OS X, the one that only shows "Quit".
This is a core issue and Bug 1151345.

Yes we'll try to get this in the next release.
