I deleted components.ini from my profile (in a vain attempt to get enigmail
working). Thunderbird didn't start after this, instead lots of thunderbird
processes got created and killed after a short time, while consuming 100% CPU.
Because the processed didn't stay long enough for being killed in the task
manager, the only way to get rid of them was rebooting.
Interestingly, just restoring components.ini from the trash bin even during such
a borked start attempt cured it.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. delete components.ini from profile directory
2. start thunderbird

Actual Results:  
thunderbird didn't come up.

I run as an unprivileged user. The \programs\thunderbird directory is write
protected for this account.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
