I've realized that, as Firefox, Thunderbird points the users to for extensions, a site listing non-free software.
This must be avoided redirecting the users to a list of free add-ons.

This can be easily fixed by changing some default config chains:

$ cat /etc/thunderbird/pref/freedom-settings.js // Preferences for the Get Add-ons panel
pref ("extensions.getAddons.showPane", false);
pref ("extensions.getAddons.browseAddons",
pref("extensions.getAddons.maxResults", 5);
pref ("extensions.getAddons.recommended.browseURL",
pref ("extensions.getAddons.recommended.url",
pref ("",
pref ("",
pref ("extensions.getMoreExtensionsURL" ,
pref ("extensions.getMorePluginsURL" ,
pref ("extensions.getMoreThemesURL" ,
// Dictionary download preference
pref("", "";);

I think only extensions.getMoreExtensionsURL and extensions.getMoreThemesURL apply, unless Thunderbird's about:config doesn't show all valid settings. These settings can also be added to the existing file /etc/thunderbird/pref/thunderbird.js, which would make patching a little bit easier.

Bug reported:
I'll see about a patch. Shouldn't be much more than a one-liner like gen-gnome-desktop to add the lines to debian/thunderbird.js.
