This has been discussed before (and I'm sure there's another bug report
somewhere too).

Thunderbird shouldn't just use notify-osd, as it doesn't support actions
and is completely useless on its own for notifying about e-mails.
However, there is ongoing work to integrate Thunderbird in to the
messaging menu, and part of this will involve using notify-osd.

(Note, when you talk about notify-osd, you really mean libnotify.
notify-osd is just an implementation of the notification spec and
applications don't integrate with this or have any knowledge of it.
thunderbird and firefox already have libnotify integration, but it
degrades on ubuntu because of the lack of actions)

** Changed in: thunderbird (Ubuntu)
       Status: New => Invalid
