  2. Edit ~/.thunderbird//prefs.js in GNU/Linux, C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\****.default\prefs.js in Microsoft Windows XP, and C:\Users\\App Data\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\****.default\prefs.js in Microsoft Windows Vista and 7.
  3. Edit those the following 2 lines to change the order of the accounts. The default account is always first one.
