Thunderbird crashes when clicking on link in email. SOLVED by turning off hardware acceleration
Thunderbird v31.4.0 Linux Mint Debian Edition 3.1.2-amd64 Cinnamon 2.0.14
When clicking on a link within an email, the system crashes and the monitor display displays jagged, diagonal lines. A cold boot is required. This can be repeated.
Same results running in Safe Mode.

That did the trick!
A side note:
gfx.direct2d.disabled was not already listed in config so added the listing.
