With Firebird 0.7 and Thunderbird 0.3 i have now switched for good from Mozilla. I gotta say both are now working awesome, thunderbird feels a little more sluggish than firebird too me for some odd reason but hopefully that will be sorted out as it becomes more mature.

Anyway, running the GTK2 and XFT builds of both and both work and look awesome
