Having an issue with Thunderbird when using webmail extension...

I have Thunderbird installed along with the webmail, hotmail, and yahoo extensions so i can check all of my accounts at once. It works wonderfully when i'm logged in as root, but as i understand staying logged in as root is a huge no-no. However, when i'm logged in as any other profile i immediately get a message that says "denied access to localhost" when i start Thunderbird and it attempts to get my mail. It does get mail from other accounts, but none of the accounts that use localhost. Any help on this topic would be hugely appreciated. I am a total linux noob so i realize this may be a stupid question. If it's any help i'm using FC3.

Did you set up your extensions and accounts in root or as user?
