IIUC those tools are based on top of GnuPG.

Thunderbird 78 will not use GnuPG in its default configuration, so you 
will not be able to use them with Thunderbird's internal keyring.

No, currently the intention is that the Thunderbird keyring is 
considered internal data, stored in the Thunderbird profile directory, 
managed by Thunderbird, only.
