Everytime I am adding a new Repository to Sourcetree, Sourcetree crashes. When I delete the repository again Sourcetree works. So I am not able to add a new repository. Any ideas what I can do?
We are investigating the crash with https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/SRCTREE-5762. There seems to be an issue loading and reading repo avatars. We will soon have an update on this. Thanks for your patience!

Yes, it was due to fetching repo avatars. It wouldn't crash only until it tried to fetch again.
This was primarily due to a change deployed by Bitbucket cloud that was reverted in time. Also, we made a release of macOS client to ensure this type of a crash doesn't happen again. Thanks for the understanding and kind cooperation.
Someone suggested this issue might be related to another one a bunch of us are experiencing with crashing on startup. For us the browser.plist and a few other files seem to be the culprit and as long as I don't make bookmarks I'm able to work.
Please see here for discussion of what's happening with crashes:
You should check to make sure that committing a repo doesn't cause a crash. And also see if you can add bookmarks without a crash.
Because initially when I deleted the entire support folder it appeared to work without crashing but the first commit made it crash. And then any attempt to launch the app after that also resulted in crash.
For me deleting the entire support folder was temporary and incomplete fix but if I tried to add a bookmark it'd crash. Removing the browser.plist file made it work again as long as I don't add any bookmarks.
I'm currently able to commit etc. but I have to make sure not to create bookmarks.
