Comment:

 I have been looking into this, and it appears to be an issue with the
 permissions toolchain: user -> root (to run AppCafe) -> user (to open web
 browser)
 Somewhere along the line it is stripping out the environment variables
 that Firefox/Thunderbird needs to "see itself" at a later time - causing
 the error that you report. I am experimenting with alternate ways for our
 Qt utilities to launch processes so that we might prevent this issue, but
 it will probably not be ready in time for 10.0.2
