Now that you've installed Mozilla Thunderbird 3, if you have a Google Wave account, maybe you would want to use it Thunderbird.

To use Google Wave in Thunderbird 3, all you have to do is navigate to Tools > Error console, paste this code:

Components.classes['@mozilla.org/appshell/window-mediator;1'].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIWindowMediator).getMostRecentWindow("mail:3pane").document.getElementById("tabmail").openTab("contentTab", {contentPage: "https://wave.google.com/wave/?nouacheck"});

and click "Evaluate":

A new tab with Google Wave will then open. The tab will be restored each time you open Thunderbird (if you don't manually close it, obviously):

And another tip: you can change the "https://wave.google.com/wave" url in the code above with any other website URL, so you can open it in Thunderbird 3 (such as Google Reader, Hootsuite, or whatever you want).
