I have Thunderbird version (20080724) and it works fine. Can 
you check what version of Thunderbird you are using (Help > About 
Thunderbird should do)?
In addition to what Sankarshan told, you can also check the 
distribution's bug tracker for a similar bug reported for the version 
your are using or the later versions. If so, please see if there is a 
response. Else, please feel free to file a bug :)
