downloaded thunderbird and installed again.
discovered that thunderbird is NOT installing in the APPLICATIONS folder. 
when I open the new install, the program shows a turning circle (like it is processing) and the progress thermometer at the bottom right is full blue like it is hung up.  
always reverts to this one every restart or every re-install. 
there is no un-install program so I think that some part is still in the hard drive and when a re-install takes place, this partially uncompleted process (and hung up program) comes back.

If I could erase the program and all sub folders I believe it would get a clean install???? Yes? No?
