As of the 2017-07-26 Thunderbird nightly build, neither Enigmail nor the Expression Search / Google Mail UI add-on work. There are errors from both of them in the error console:

NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED: Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIXPCComponents_Utils.import]  mime.jsm:16
Contract ID '@mozilla.org/enigmail/cline-handler;1' was registered as a command line handler for entry 'cline-enigmail', but could not be created.
NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED: Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIXPCComponents_Utils.import]  mime.jsm:16

Queries typed in the search box don't work, and whenever I go to send a message, I get a pop-up alerting me that Enigmail couldn't be initialized and asking me to confirm sending an unencrypted message.

I fixed Enigmail for TB Daily on 2017-07-28. Please download the very latest nightly build of Enigmail from https://www.enigmail.net/index.php/en/download/nightly-build
> Something broke in add-on loading as of 2017-07-26 Thunderbird nightly
Absolutely.

Now all imports need to be correct:
Components.utils.import("resource://gre/modules/Services.jsm"); for M-C imports and
Components.utils.import("resource:///modules/mailServices.js"); for C-C imports.

Non-compliant add-ons will break TB or only break themselves.

Prominent add-ons that needed fixing: Enigmail, Lightning and ThunderHTMLedit.

Is there any chance of fixing the TB code to produce a better error message than "NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED: Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIXPCComponents_Utils.import]", to make it at least a bit more obvious what needs to be fixed?
You've really have to refer the question to the M-C people from bug 1383215. You know that TB doesn't own that code. I agree that the message is less than helpful.

Expression Search / Google Mail UI (https://github.com/wangvisual/expression-search) Fixed.
