I've updated the Ubuntu Unity Messaging Menu integration extension to support both 32 and 64 bit systems. However, like the Unity Launcher extension, this update now requires the use of Thunderbird 3.3 or higher.
Please leave your feedback here. Thanks!

Hm. No, that wasn't on purpose. You say it disables the message count on the Unity Launcher Extension - you mean that the entire extension is disabled in the add-on manager, or just that the new message count is not appearing?
In either case, does disabling the Messaging Menu extension solve the issue? Also, what version of the Unity Launcher extension do you have?
Ok, a few other diagnostics - first off, is there a library called
"libunity.so.3" in /usr/lib? If you open up the error console (Tools
> Error Console), is there an error there belonging to either
unitylauncher/overlay.js, or unitylauncher/UnityLauncherLib.jsm that
complains about being unable to load a library?
I ask, because it sounds like the extension is having a hard time
finding the library that it needs to interact with the launcher.

I don't. But I do have a libunity.so.4.
$ sudo apt-get install libunity3

Package libunity3 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
