Why Thunderbird Can't Display vCard in Linux?

I am running Thunderbird in Fedora 9. The vCard attached in email can only be displayed as attachment. But the same version of Thunderbird in Windows can display vCard as a pleasant graphical card view at the end of email messages. Anyone know why? How to make Thunderbird in Linux do the same thing? Thanks a lot!

uhhm..I am running Thunderbird in Fedora 9 and vcards are displayed at bottom of message as a small "card" in a rounded box, not as an attachment....

That e-mail was sent by another thunderbird running on windows XP.
When I send e-mails, people on windows can see my v-card too.

I checked Thunderbird's preferences but I can't find anything useful to help you...
