The email still gets sent but Daily has to get restarted.

This problem is for Mac and it started on Monday 9th.
I had been off for 2 weeks.

I don't know how to check for my version (how can I load about:?)

Can't reproduce, but the crash is here:
as a regression, and top 5 crash for Daily, twould probably be cool to have this fixed before shipping aurora 12.0aN

Created attachment 591252 [details] [diff] [review]
proposed fix

I verified that with this patch, messages are written to the fcc folder correctly even if the fcc folder .msf file is missing.
