   Pardon the dumb question.  I've looked through what I can find and I
can't tell how what doesn't work differs from what does.
   I've installed packages mozilla-firefox and mozilla-thunderbird from
apt.  I also have ( in /opt/... ) versions un-tarred from the
mozilla.org nightlies.

What do I need to do to get these things running?

Erm, you're not logged into X as root, are you?

Yes. It's when I try logging in as not-root that I cannot even run the thunderbird installation that I /can/ run as root.
