Attached file Sample of Daily.txt
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.12; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0
Build ID: 20160630123429

Steps to reproduce:

After update to macOS Sierra Developer Beta 2 Daily hangs on start. I used to run Daily builds on Beta 1.

Actual results:

When started from the Dock the icon bounces for a while but then it stops. No running indicator appears under the icon. In the Activity Monitor Daily process is present and consumes 99% of CPU.

When ran from terminal it outputs the following and hangs.

> thunderbird(4058,0x7fffbdfda3c0) malloc: *** malloc_zone_unregister() failed for 0x7fffbdfd1548

I tried nightly builds all the way back to 42.0a1 starting with today's (50.0a1 (2016-07-07)). All the hang in the same way.
This doesn't happen to release versions. 45.2.0 runs fine.

macOS Sierra 10.12 Developer Beta 2 (16A239j).
OS: Unspecified → Mac OS X
Does it also happen in safe mode?
Yes. Both when starting with Option key from the dock and with --safe-mode switch on the command line.

Maybe it would help, I can not even get help with --help switch on command line.
I don't pretend to know anything about the state of stability and Macs, but perhaps related to bug 1284677?

Indeed, looks very similar by description. Likely the same issue.

I filed bug 1286613 about the crash.
List of crashes:

* bp-ce17ac14-4ff6-4646-9ce9-f82302160713

I don't know if any of those are related to this issue or its fix or not.
