I can confirm this bug.

Detailed description:
* When clicking on encrypted mails, thunderbird says "This is an
encrypted OpenPGP message. In order to decrypt this mail, you need to
install an OpenPGP add-on" although enigmail is installed and shows up
in the menu and in addons
* Similiarly, the enigmail encryption symbol is shown (greyd-out) but no
longer works when writing mails
* Enigmail settings can no longer be accessed via the menu only via
addons (clicking on menu and hovering over enigmail no longer shows a
submenu, clicking on enigmail -> preferences in the menu bar
* Clicking on Enigmail buttons is no longer processed (yields no results)
* In Preferences -> Basic settings, the message beneath "Files and
Directories" is "(error)". Since clicking on enigmail buttons is no
longer processed, it is impossible to activate "Override with" to
/usr/bin/gpg2 ("Ok" button does not work, "Browse" button does not work,
"Display Expert Settings and Menus" does not work)

Further info:
* gpg and gpg2 exist (both in /usr/bin/) and both work flawlessly on the
command line
* all current upgrades have been installed
* I have been informed that the same error also occurs on at least one
other system of a colleague with a debian standard install
