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.)
