Same problem here. Additional info: Folders can be opened in "tabs", but within a specific tab no other folders can be selected. Thunderbird appears twice within list of installed programs. uninstalling either entry (38.2 or 38.3) Thunderbird is completely gone while the second/alternative entry still exists. Trying to uninstall remaining version displays error message something like "program already removed (Programm wurde bereits deinstalliert)". After re-installing 38.2 everything works as expected as long as no update is executed.
Yes, I saw the error too which "chtdesign" told us. Infortunately it's not a practical solution to go back to Vs. 38.2, but you are right, this downgrade functions. My solution with temporarily installing Vs. 40.0b seems to fix the problem even when installing 38.3. But, please developers, find what's going wrong there - thanks!
Your automatic update occurred prior to our disabling the updates, because of this problem. Sorry for the trouble. Someone is working on the problem. Thanks for reporting it.

Thanks Wayne by now almoust all of our PCs are repaired manually as described above (3 to 5 min per PC). For your information: Today, I installed Vs. 38.3 on a new PC (Win 7 x32 SP1 newest updates). It uses integrated lightning 4.0.3 and everything seems to work fine. I set up thunderbird compleetly new too.
