I am a little bit confused by the Thunderbird dialog. It provides the 
option to enter a bind DN, but no password. And Thunderbird does not ask 
for a password, if necessary.

One option would be to enable anonymous access for the server, which 
will probably work better (leave the bind DN blank in this case).

Try username = "cn=Thomas Quist,ou=system,o=sevenSeas"
password = "test"

I assume that a user DN is expected here, although it states "User name".
