Hi Fred,

In firefox, open about:config and search for
"network-protocol-handler.app.mailto" and give there the path to your
thunderbird.

Not at all sure it is that but the subject is discussed there:
http://snipurl.com/firefox_thunderb

You can also do this: edit your

~/.thunderbird/xxxxxxx.default/prefs.js

user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app", "");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.ftp", "/usr/bin/firefox");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "/usr/bin/firefox");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https", "/usr/bin/firefox");


Olivier.

==================

Thanks, Olivier. I'm just completing a fresh install of 10.3 64-bit on this laptop.....as I removed Kubuntu 8.04 beta....more on that later. I tried your suggestion..........."nada." 'Was worth a try.

Thanks,

Fred
