Right, Tor is a socks proxy, not an http proxy.  You may have
mis-configured the proxy settings in thunderbird 3 to use localhost:9050
for the http and https protocols.  

: Is this normal behavior? If so, why? This isn't covered in your online docs.

It is.  What may not be covered is Thunderbird 3 specifically, since
it's new and we rely upon volunteers to tell others how to configure
various programs.   And as you've discovered, tor tells you it isn't an
http proxy.
