Mozilla Thunderbird fails to launch after YaST update

I have been running Thunderbird for months without problems. Today I got notification from Online Update than there are updates available. I checked Thunderbird security update and it was installed. After that I tried to restart Thunderbird and if failed. Tried from console and I got this message:


mordor@linux:~> thunderbird
/opt/MozillaThunderbird/lib64/mozilla-xremote-client: Error: Failed to send command: 509 internal error
mordor@linux:~>


It seems form reading some posts on internet that it might be required to reinstall both Firefox and Thunderbird:
