    Ok, you are not a Shell Monkey?
    anyhow,
    I do It now once for you so you just have to do exacly what I typed here:
    Code:
    goto http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/thunderbird/all.html#en-GB and download  thunderbird.tar to /home/yourname
    open term
    cd ~ (Change Dir to Home(~))
    tar xvf thunderbird-2.0.0.6.tar.gz (just type down tar xvf thunder<tabbutton>)
    At this point you have extracted thunderbird in your home folder.
    cd thunderbird (ChangeDir to the thunderbird folder you just made)
    sh run-mozilla.sh (execute shell script to start Thunderbird)
    {Here thunderbird should pop up}
    I hope you get it now.

    You need to run 'thunderbird'. From the thunderbird directory type ./thunderbird. That should do it. Look at my earlier post.

    okay, I went to packages.ubuntu.com, installed both thunderbird and firefox using the deb files, both installed and ran, HOWEVER, neither can connect to the net, so my new question is, when the heck is someone going to make an OS that never gives any problems? now back to reality, how do you fix this problem? as I can't stand Konqueror, and Kontact is confusing, so please help me fix this problem

    Your answer on the OS question: NEVER. or Microsoft will do it and then just dont show the errors. But they will always be there if users can interact with it.
    If you cant stant Konqueror or Kontact switch DE. Go XFCE then you have neither.

    Something is wrong somewhere. Uninstall firefox and download firefox tar package from here. Right click on downloaded package and select Extract Here. it will create FireFox folder. Open Firefox folder and look for firefox file in it. Double click on that. FireFox should pop up and work properly.
