Trying to download beta1 with wget using the download page will get you the win32 exe file instead. wget http://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-3.0b1&os=linux&lang=en-US This works fine downloading with the browser, but it seems there's some guessing that's trying to be too smart there...
You're missing the quotes around the URL, making this a simple case of PEBKAC. ;) You should be doing this instead: wget "http://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-3.0b1&os=linux&lang=en-US" You can't just wget <bouncer url> because of the ampersands in the URL, which make wget fork to the background after the first &, which means you're really only saying "wget http://download.mozilla.org/?product=thunderbird-3.0b1", which defaults to win32 and en-US because of the lack of other parameters.
