Use on the Shell,
~# mozilla-thunderbird -ProfileManager
Then create a new profile, and sellect your backed up profile folder.
Then you'll have all your extensions and settings in this profile. I
suggest, you move your Profile folder on another partition than Your
OS(es) one so that you won't lose it.

I heard about a plugin which does backup your mail but I don't remeber
the name. Look on Thunderbird website.
