Yes, I have successfully installed prior Thunderbird versions using the
same procedure that failed this time.

I would use Linux except that I have accumulated a number of
applications that I like but that exist only for Windows.

Actually, I was a UNIX user before I ever saw a PC running Windows.  As
a software tester for a large client-server system, I wrote a number of
test tools in UNIX Korn.  Thus, I think I could adapt to Linux quite
easily.  However, I do not want to give up using the Windows-only
applications I have accumulated.
