*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1236351 ***

I have tried debugging. My traceback from "thunderbird --debug" is
pretty useless, so this is my experience + a seemingly fine workaround.

I'm under the impression that the rest of the Thunderbird community does
not experience this issues since there's no talk of it. However, since
switching to 13.10 I've had segmentation faults CONSTANTLY. I'm using
gnome-shell btw. I can mention at least 3 different things that have a
50-100% chance of crashing Thunderbird.

I tried disabling all extensions, no luck.

I tried also to disble all plugins systematically.

Finally, I found the culprit. So my solution/workaround is:

Tools -> Add-ons  -> Plugins -> Gnome Shell Integration -> DISABLE

After this, I haven't seen the usual crashes, only a few "Program
received signal SIGPIPE, Broken pipe." which seem to not kill the mail

Can other reporters perhaps state if they are seeing an improvement from
disabling the Gnome Shell Integration?
