Bug Description

Binary package hint: thunderbird

1. In Ubuntu Software Center 1.1.17, navigate to "Get Software" > "Internet".
2. Scroll through the alphabetical list to where Mozilla Thunderbird should be.
3. Navigate to the "Mail" subsection.

What you see:
2. Mozilla Thunderbird is there.
3. Mozilla Thunderbird isn't there, though other mail clients are.

To fix this:
3. Add the "Mail" category to Firefox's .desktop file.

Confirmed by looking at the thunderbird.desktop file in thunderbird 3.0.3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1 sourcecode.
I believe this could be fixed by adding the "Mail" category to Thunderbird's .desktop file.

Per pitti no FFe needed:
(01:57:58 AM) micahg: pitti: does adding apps to the proper category in software center require an FFe or UiFe?
(01:59:10 AM) pitti: micahg: fixing a wrong category? neither, I think
(01:59:27 AM) micahg: pitti: how about adding a missing category
(01:59:35 AM) pitti: same case
