Modal dialogs on macOS should open as "sub-window" under the title bar of a window. However, since TB 58, the dialogs appear at weird locations. As they cannot be used, the become unusable. 

See attached screenshot: the Account Manager is opened at the bottom of the window.
I can't reproduce this with 58.0b2. Have you tried with "Restart with Add-ons disabled"?

Yes, it also happens in Safe Mode. I should add that I'm on macOS 10.12.6 (Sierra).

It doesn't happen always, and interestingly, it seems to depend on which element got the focus before a dialog is opened. 
For example, if I click on the message view pane (lower right), then the dialog will open there.

Furthermore, the dialog also "moves" when you resize the window. I created a video showing the behavior. It also happens when the dialog is originally at the correct location:  https://enigmail.net/video/Screen_Video.mov

Do you use engimail? If so, do you see this with 58 on Sierra?

AFAICT, it's not depending on Enigmail in any way. I made the video in Safe Mode, without _any_ addon.
Yes, when I marked something in the message pane and then open the prefs through the menu I can confirm your issue on TB 58. On TB 59 the sheet always opens at the correct position. But when resizing the window it jumps too.

I can reproduce this on High Sierra (macOS 10.13) and with TB 59a1.
