I was having the same issue myself.

I inspected /opt/thunderbird-beta and found that thunderbird-bin was symlinked to thunderbird. However, when I downloaded the tar.bz2 I noticed that thunderbird and thunderbird-bin are two different files (one's an executable and the other is a shared library) I copied these two over and started it using thunderbird-beta and everything worked then.

EDIT: Try deleting the line "ln -sf thunderbird "$pkgdir"/opt/$_pkgname/thunderbird-bin" from the PKGBUILD.

Maintainer here, I am also getting the same issue. I am busy with work and cannot look too much into it, but in the brief moment I ran gdb, it seemed like it was stuck in an infinite loop trying to load /usr/lib/ . For the moment, I reverted back to the previous version.

Hey, hello, this next version bump does not work for me. There is no debugging info even on verbose. Just nothing happens

No idea, if all have thunderbird-beta-bin, not thunderbird nor thunderbird-beta nor non-63.0b1 nor custom settings, themes nor launch flags.

I have a strange issue when composing message. It happens only on one computer. Other laptops with the same newest thunderbird work fine.

When I change font font (Comic, Courier, Arial there is no change. Nothing changes when changing to "Fixed Width" either. The only font that differs is Times -> fixed width does not work here either.

What could be the reason of that? The fonts behave fine in other applications (inkscape and libreoffice)

Am I missing some library?

Second DDoSolitary's comment I had to comment line 72 to get it to build correctly

I do experience the same issue as DDoSolitary. "rm: cannot remove '/tmp/yaytmp-1000/thunderbird-beta-bin/pkg/thunderbird-beta-bin/opt/thunderbird-beta/dictionaries': No such file or directory ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package(). Aborting..."
