2. Place cursor in body text pane
3. Select Insert option on compose menu bar
Actual Results:  
Drop down list displays, but no icons display next to words (options)

Expected Results:  
Expect to see relevant smiley icon display next to text option.

OK this works for me. 
Have you tried safe mode? (see for more information)

Is there some error messages in tools -> error console ?

This does not work in Safe Mode either. Note: I am using a clean install of Thunderbird with no extensions, and no pre-existing profile.

Error console shows the following:

Failed to load XPCOM component: /home/test/Desktop/thunderbird/components/

Error: An error occurred updating the button_previous command: TypeError: this._treeElement is undefined
Source File: chrome://global/content/globalOverlay.js
Line: 86
I need some linux guru meditation to figure out the fact that the path lib seems incorrect. Asac, Magnus, Wolfgang any ideas ?
Sounds like something similar to bug 508221
the load failure of is probably just missing dependency on the system. 
ldd /home/test/Desktop/thunderbird/components/ 
would probably tell us but it's likely not related to the missing icons. I agree with Mike that it sounds like the changed Gnome behaviour.
Would be interesting which version of Thunderbird that is exactly.
