Today I thought I suffered from this bug because I had the very same
symptom, but then I found out it was a completely different (and
selfmade) problem. It turned out that for https links thunderbird was
still trying to start a local copy of firefox that I just deleted. It
wasn't configured as network.protocol-handler.app.https but as a mime
type. To figure out if you have the same problem, just run this:

fgrep firefox .thunderbird/*default*/mimeTypes.rdf

and check the output for non standard pathes to firefox.
