The wizard only works with the following email clients: Outlook, Outlook Express, IncrediMail, Netscape Messenger and Eudora Mail. Although you would think since Netscape Messenger is listed, T-bird would work. I find I get nothing, too, so T-bird is not one the wizard knows. Sorry. A little cutting and pasting will get the job done without a great deal of pain.

6.0 is a pretty old version, you might want to go to www.firetrust.com and download the most recent release. Upgrades to MW are free.

It wasn't implied that ThunderBird was supported for account import in version 6.2.

Either way, supporting ThunderBird is on the list of things to do for the rewrite version, though this is some time off.
