How did you install thunderbird?
Your comment about the soft link from /usr/local/bin and the
path /usr/bin/thunderbird/thunderbird above implies you may have
compiled or installed from a tarball.
Have you tried the version that is included in the FC3 distro? That
would be installed from rpm and the executable would
be /usr/bin/thunderbird and not the strange path or links you quote
Works fine for me.
