Monitor and restart thunderbird using monit

Hello there, :)

I'd like to know if it is possible to monitor Thunderbird using a utility such as Monit and restart Thunderbird if it is not running.
I'm unable to find a command to do so as it is not a service and the PID changes when Thunderbird restarts.
I was thinking of adding it as an upstart service in CentOS 6 and then configure Monit to monitor that service.
I'm not sure if this is the way to approach this?

Since CentOS 6 died yesterday there is no point in doing this.

CentOS 6 is dead and will receive no more updates. It is time to move to a newer version.
