I figured out how to make Firefox recognize thunderlinks on the mac. In addition to the instructions on the Mozillazine page, you have to do the following:

Create a boolean pref called network.protocol-handler.expose.thunderlink and set it to false. Then, when you click on a thunderlink in the browser (or paste a thunderlink into the address bar), Firefox will ask you to choose a program to associate with this protocol. Navigate to /Applications/Thunderbird.app and click to the checkbox to remember this choice, and you're set.

Now clicking on a thunderlink will bring up Thunderbird. The only issue is that it doesn't bring up the right email in Thunderbird. That's probably because I am using ver 11.01. I am looking forward to the Thunderlink update that will make it work in Thunderbird 11. I hope this fix helps anyone who was having the same frustration as I was on the mac.

I would like very much to be able to use this on a mac. I tried installing it and registering the protocol in firefox as per instructions, but every time I put a thunderlink into firefox, it complains that "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (thunderlink) isn't associated with any program."

I think this extension is a great idea, so any help you can give me to resolve the problem would be very welcome.
