There's also a chance that the restore went fine, but Thunderbird isn't
looking at the right profile, so doesn't see it. Profiles are yet
another annoying feature of Thunderbird (and still I use it; partly
because everything else has more or different annoyances).

Maybe there's something in this page about profiles that might fix the
issue: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Thunderbird
