I assume you've you tried uninstalling all extensions, closing
thunderbird and then restarting it?

Well, the following worked for me, your mileage may of course vary.
This was done a year or more ago, using an older version of thunderbird.
I installed thunderbird in Ubuntu and ran it, creating profile folders
etc, then shut it down and copied my thunderbird profile directory from
windows directly into ~/.mozilla-thunderbird. It started fine, though I
had to reload all my extensions. The hoary enigmail extension caused me
some grief (crashed upon encountering a gpg signed mail), but unloading
that and using the one from Mozilla solved the problem.
