Email vanished

Hi everyone,
I have been using Mozilla Thunderbird for email & Firefox for browser.
Firefox has set itself to safe mode & Thunderbird disappeared from start menu. Also does not show in programs but they both show in control panel add/remove as being present.
I can re-install of course but dont want to lose my mail & address book.
Any advice please.

remove and re-install Firefox first, see if it picks up your original profile. if not start with a new one. same procedure for thunderbird, but you will need to locate your current profile and copy it, or compress it so you can re-import it.
run thunderbird manually from "<drive letter>:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe".
Profile(s) are located in <drive letter>:\Documents and Settings\<your account name>\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles
