There was some accidental breakage in the Mac builds of Nightly last Friday (Sept 16th), which results in a crash when you try to update your build. The revisions & buildIDs for the broken builds are

  • 39b192706927, 20110916030907
  • f4d78560721a, 20110916071142

You can check what you have by loading about:buildconfig, or evaluating navigator.buildID in the Web Console.

The solution is to download the latest Nightly build from http://nightly.mozilla.org.

Applications like Thunderbird and SeaMonkey are probably also affected.
