- !! Thunderbird launch script  
-Here's the launcher script I use to start Thunderbird (installed from .tar.gz) in my Linux Mandrake 10.. This script uses existing Thunderbird process if possible or launches a new one if needed. This script prints "./mozilla-xremote-client: Error: Failed to find a running server." in the terminal if no old process is running. I don't like the 'ping()' trick used in the MozillaFirefoxStartupScript because it slows down the process. Instead I just try to use the remote and if it fails, I fall back to normal behavior.
