"Add/Remove Software" in F16 runs gpk-application, which is a frontend to Packagekit API, which is a frontend, in this context, to yum. It's hard to say from the information you're being given by gpk-application where the backend failure is. A fresh install might correct whatever it is, but it's a drastic step and a shot in the dark.
I'd suggest that you open a terminal and do "sudo yum install thunderbird". If that succeeds, you're good to go with Thunderbird, and can troubleshoot your gpk-application issue further with other packages later, or continue to use the yum command line fallback when you have a failure like this. If yum doesn't succeed, post what yum tells you, and we can help with the yum failure.
