For some reason, when  Firefox is launched the busy cursor continues 
to display until it times out. The only way that I know to correct 
this is to reduce the time-out or disable the busy cursor altogether, 
in systemsettings - Desktop - Launch Feedback.

I don't use thunderbird, but I assume the same applies to it. 

(I use Mandriva's firefox packages.)
