A bug? Or a configuration setting? Have you done a fresh install or an upgrade?
Could it be that the old version string has entered your preferences and overrides
the default?

The F14 package certainly sets up a Fedora User-Agent string that
matches its build version-release:

$ grep thunderbird_ver thunderbird.spec
%define thunderbird_version 3.1.15
Version: %{thunderbird_version}
%{__cat} %{SOURCE12} | %{__sed} -e 's,THUNDERBIRD_RPM_VR,%{thunderbird_version}-%{release},g' \
cp objdir-tb/mozilla/dist/%{name}-%{thunderbird_version}*.crashreporter-symbols.zip $RPM_BUILD_ROOT$DEBUG_LIB_DIR/debug%{mozappdir}

For F11, last Thunderbird was 3.0.5. And that one would also not report
being 2.0.0.23-1.fc10,

  http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/11/SRPMS/thunderbird-3.0.4-2.fc11.src.rpm

unless an older User-Agent id somehow overrides the default one.
