Ok you can modify it, ask if help needed

Right now not possible.

I need to do something about it. People are asking for it.

There is a extension  "External Application Buttons" by Torisugari 

If somebody can modify that to call a javascript we could realize it.

Mean while you can use hot key 
on FireBird hot key for a macro is Alt-T M then first character of macro 

but in thunderbird Alt-T M is for search
so some deiting will do the trick

edit \content\macroeditor\menu_all.xul in MacroEditor.jar

 <menu id="macro.main.menuitem"
       label="Macro" >

change  label="Macro" 
to  label="X Macro" 

now Alt-T X then first character of macro name will invoke the macro

If you are not comfortable in unzip and rezip
you could use 7-zip from http://www.7-zip.org/
it allow you to edit a file which is inside a zip file
