Details

TB78.1.1, profile upgraded from TB68.11.0
OpenPGP is enabled.

Attempting to import a private key into OpenPGP from a backup file. Upon selecting the file, TB recognizes that this is a private key, and then presents the passphrase prompt.
Passphrase is being entered, then nothing happens anymore, and the import dialog kind of hangs.
This is shown in the error console:

Upon closing the tab, or restarting Thunderbird, the key has not been imported.
The very same key has always worked in betas.

This may be related.
After starting Thunderbird, this shows up in the error console:
core.jsm: startup.continueStartup: error Error, secring.gpg exists, but cannot obtain password from encrypted-openpgp-passphrase.txt

The master password has been entered upon Thunderbird start-up.

Thanks for that. I did follow the suggestion in comment #20 of bug 1656287. Deleted the file secring.gpg, and then successfully re-imported the private key. This fixed the problem.
