I agree, anyway,

If you go to http://bugs.debian.org  and search for package
mozilla-thunderbird and filter only for distribution for stable, the
top two issues are the ones of concern here ... so should pretty easy
to find.


Anyway, I see that this might not be the most obvious way to go for users.

In fact, you ask for an integration of the package manager with the
bug-tracking system. There used to be a tool called apt-listbugs [1],
which unfortunately stopped working with the upgrade of our new
versioned bug-tracking system. Don't know if there is a substitude
so far. But it was almost exactly what you propose here.
