Can not install thunderbird 2


hello everybody,

i am trying to install thunderbird 2 and i followed the instructions on the thunderbird website and i get this message

Code:
ahmad@1[thunderbird]$ ./thunderbird
bash: ./thunderbird: Permission denied
i changed the properties of the file to be executable so the result changed

Code:
ahmad@1[thunderbird]$ ./thunderbird
Cannot find mozilla runtime directory. Exiting.
of course there is something wrong and i can not find it out so,

what is it ?
