This applies to the Linux installations of at least the following known
Thunderbird 0.9.3 (?) --- whatever was in Debian before today (2/09)
Nightly 2005-02-08-05
"Debian" Thunderbird version 1.0 (20050116)

Initially, was working normally.  I installed several extensions.  I then found
my HTML mail would not display any graphics -- just the default outline boxes
where they should have been.
If I save the email as HTML and open-file in my browser, the HTML is rendered
correctly, images and all.

I uninstalled all Thunderbird extensions.  However, it did not correct the problem.
As a SWAG, whichever extension is 'guilty' did not correctly clean up after
itself when uninstalled.  Some chrome got hosed. 

The installation script for any <> extension should include
making a backup of any file it replaces, and the uninstall script should restore
the backup.
