Just a wild guess:

1. Try starting Thunderbird with all addons disabled:
	thunderbird -safe-mode
2. Try with a fresh profiles directory
3. Last resort, try reinstalling the thunderbird rpm.

The install getting messed up is rare. But there is a possibility that
an addon is messing up things. This can be easily verified by disabling
all the addons. But if an addon has modified the base files, then trying
out a new profile should rule it out.
