To be honest, it's actually the other way around.  Firefox is going to 
add a menu button similar to the one we now have in Thunderbird, and 
remove their current Firefox button.  (See the right-hand side of the 
image at the top of this page 
for example.)  So, given that this release will last us until version 
24, I thought it would be good to skip the (now-old) Firefox button, and 
just implement the next iteration of the design.

Having said that, if any of you _really_ want a Thunderbird button, I 
would probably accept a patch that changed the look of the Menu Button 
to that style when people dragged it into the titlebar/tabbar...
