Thunderbird is a Gnome application so you could try playing with the
Gnome font settings. For example, under Fonts you can try different
kinds of rendering and smoothing. I've found that these can make a
significant difference.

If you're using KDE, you can still do this by running
gnome-control-center and selecting the Appearance icon under Look and
Feel, then the Fonts tab.
