    Open /etc/apt/sources.list file and remove # sign before multiverse and Universe lines.
    Code:
    kdesu kate /etc/apt/sources.list
    Save file and execute this
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install thunderbird
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    well, that didn't work, I think everyone of those downloads was a failure, as the ones that were not pushed off the window, said connection timed out

    Thunderbird and firefox update themselves when you open them so I'm still not sure what you mean. If you're having difficulty with the package manager the mozilla downloads are a perfectly good alternative.

    Open the folder where you downloaded 'thunderbird... tar.bz2 then right click on the thunderbird file, choose 'extract to ...', choose a folder (I use /usr/lib/ in openSUSE it may be different in kubuntu but it actually doesn't matter where you put it) and click OK. If you extract to a folder outside of your /home folder you will have to sudo or su.
    Once you've extracted it you will have a folder called /thunderbird with an executable file called thunderbird. Click on this to open or create a desktop link to this file.
