I'm not sure if you've found a solution to this issue but what you can 
do is add the following lines to the firefox and thunderbird pref.js 
files.  Close firefox and thunderbird before doing so and replace <xxxx> 
by the appropriate name.


user_pref("", "thunderbird");


user_pref("", "firefox");
user_pref("", "firefox");
user_pref("", "firefox");
