Thunderbird 0.9 for Ubuntu?

I don't quite get what you mean with "install". I just downloaded the 
Thunderbird package and unzipped it to /opt. Then run ./thunderbird and 
there it was?! Is that all?

Concerning the links you mean you did a ln and pointed the "plugins" 
folder in /opt/firefox to /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins...

Just seems a bit too easy as I'm used to the ./configure, make, 
make-install way of installing things to linux ;)
