Update Thunderbird 60.3.2 Mac Crash after attempt to edit adresses

Follow up problem of Bug Fix 1506800 (and 1507177)
The corruption of doc. and docx. attachments is solved with Update 60.3.2.
But now Thunderbird crashes immediately, after double click in an adress to edit it. The editing feature does not start. In Thunderbird 60.3.1 this problem did not occur, only after the special update 60.3.2.  

Actual results:

Can you look under the Crash reports section. What we want is the crash id. (Those get auto linked in bugzilla if you put "bp-" before the id)
And as we said before, please type "Bug 1506800 and bug 1507177" and not "Bug Fix 1506800 (and 1507177)" :-(
Here the Crash Report ID: 71bcbeb1-bc1f-45d1-bb42-d5ee90181116
Crash Signature: [@ CoreFoundation@0xbde94 ]
All reports are on the "private" version 60.3.2 :-(

Zibi, it's crashing in OSPreferences::ReadDateTimePattern().

Severity: normal → critical

the problem persists

works fine, no crash

Ever confirmed: true
How about this try build:

I backed out another change that was made between 60.3.1 and the unofficial 60.3.2. There were five changes made between these two versions, so this is trying to undo the second one of them.

Thanks for your help!

I forgot to ask: What exactly causes the crash? Open the address book, double-click a contact, changes some fields, hit OK. Or does it depend on the fields? When does the crash happen? Or do you use CardBook, the add-on, for address management. Anything that can help reproduce the crash would be helpful. The two reports
have nothing in common although most of the other crashes
are in intl/locale/mac/OSPreferences_mac.cpp:163
this version also crashes

Opening of the adress book is possible. double click a existing contact or click of "new contact" leads to immediate crash before even the window with the details of the contact opens. I don't use CardBook. 
"New list" and "write" are fine and functioning

Yep - it should be.

I have no idea what changed to expose it.

Thanks for testing. This is absolutely puzzling. Nothing was changed in the way the panel for a new contact or the details of the existing contact is opened.

Richard, can you confirm the crashes with the try builds from comment #13 and comment #9. I can provide more builds with backouts, but is simply doesn't make sense to backout things which are in totally unrelated areas of the code. These are the differences between 60.3.1 and 60.3.2:
  Bug 1230815 - remove unused SetStripHtml() and accumulate HTML part to correct tag stripping, test. r=aceman a=jorgk

* Bug 1506422 - Replace use of nsMsgI18NFileSystemCharset() wit
We've already tried backing out the ones marked (*).

It wouldn't be caused by the CSS change in bug 1504088??
Zibi, can you add that null check in another bug please.

Perhaps for the first attempt 5 hours ago, I send the wrong crash report. I did not realize the second window with "not send crash reports".
These should be the correct ones:
I installed the first Test Version again. This is now definitvely the correct crash report of this version, whoch was posted 7 hours ago
Filed bug 1507907 for the formatter null check.

No problem with both builds. Opening contacts and also create new ones without problems.

mgehlen, could you try them with all extensions disabled?
Flags: needinfo?(richard.marti)
Richard, I assume the unofficial 60.3.2 (bug 1506800 comment #27) also works, right?
Flags: needinfo?(richard.marti)
Yes, it works too for me.
Flags: needinfo?(richard.marti)
I tried the trial version (of 2 hours ago) in the safe mode with all extensions disabled.
Again crash

I tried also the "private update" 60.3.2 from yesterday in the safe mode.
again crash
How about this one:

That includes a fix to a potential crash in OSPreferences_mac.cpp as reported here:

Thanksa lot - I am travelling and away from my computer. I will be back wednesday evening and run the test then immediately.
Flags: needinfo?(mgehlen)
We hope this is fixed by bug 1507907. You won't get any regression window here since the crash suddenly popped up on some pre-release ESR 60.3.2 builds. But Richard can't reproduce the crash on the same builds.
This last target version works perfectly - thanks a lot for all your efforts
Fixed by bug 1507907. The reporter is happy, so I'm closing this. Expect the fix in an official version in 1-2 weeks.

Thanks a lot for hanging in there with us and testing many versions!
