I have been using Thunderbird 2, but installed 3.0.3 this morning.
I launched 3.0.3 while v2 was still running, got the error message, let 3.0.3 quit, and then tried to quit v2, but it was hung.
Strangely, the Dock icon lost its triangle but the windows did not go away.
3.0.3 would not run, complaining Thunderbird was still running.
I rebooted.

I launched 3.0.3.
I poked around a few tabs (interestingly I got 2 copies of the new-features enablement tab and one new-features description tab) and hid the preview pane.
3.0.3 hung -- SPoD, no response.
I force quit 3.0.3.

I relaunched 3.0.3 and opened a message. I clicked some inline links.
Thunderbird displayed the message, then hung and completely stopped responding.
At this point I can see the message, and "Downloading 7 of 250 in Trash", but it's been stuck there for at least a couple minutes without change.

Sample and crash reports will follow.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Thunderbird.
2. Open windows & close tabs.
Actual Results:  
Thunderbird hangs.

Expected Results:  
No hang.

I use 3 IMAP accounts (Cyrus, Courier, & Exchange). Thunderbird is set to sync, rather than cache, for all accounts.

Does the crash reporter show up ?

Have you tried safe mode? (see for more information)

Apple's crash reporter, not Mozilla's.

After switching from 3.0.3 back to v2, my Inbox was was briefly corrupted again. Sorry, no 3.x Safe Mode tests for now -- I'm going to stick with v2 for awhile longer.

Chris will be filing a new bug report with screen shot for this. Suggest next test might be better if done with v3.1 - or
