Hello Peter.

Please answer directly to the list, your Thunderbird is able[0] to do so.

That should be the default behaviour. This is the content of the „Failsafe
Session“ field in my /etc/xdg/xfce4-session/xfce4-session.rc:

I think you need these if you want to have the panel. (But you can also start it
manually everytime by just running its command and saving your session wit the
panel activated.)

Well, I don’t know if you need it, but I do. I have the tasklist, the tray and a
clock there.

For this you need to use Orages panel applet. (AFAIR)

Then use that one? Oh, and torsmo seems to have a successor: conky.
