Are you, by any chance, arrowing down through the list
of messages in your inbox? If so, double check that your
preview pane (or whatever Thunderbird calls it) is not turned on.
The default settings in Thunderbird will mark messages
as read after something like 5 seconds of being displayed in the
preview pane or being opened in a separate tab for reading. If
the preview pane has accidentally been turned on this could be
your problem when you slowly cruise through your inbox. I believe
that F8 will toggle the preview pane off and on. You can also
check View menu, Layout, Message Pane.
