Works fine for me on F11.x86_64.  Questions:

Were you running Thunderbird when you updated it?

Did you restart it after the update completed?  (Firefox and Thunderbird
are notorious for getting lost in their Chrome stuff if its updated
while they are running.)

What does Help/About Thunderbird show for your version?

All this sounds like you are still running the "old" thunderbird with
the new stuff installed.  Kill it, and try running the new one again.

Yes, but knowing your current version numbers would be helpful.

yum supports downgrading.  If you can find the previous RPM, you can
downgrade to it.
