Current Issues

The following are issues identified with the current Thunderbird and/or Firefox packages. If you find outdated information here, please remove it.

Links in Thunderbird do NOT open in Firefox

If you update from Firefox 3 to Firefox 4, you may no longer be able to click on a link in Thunderbird and have it open in Firefox. Especially if you are using KDE. To correct the problem, issue the following as your user, from the command line:

gconftool-2 --type=string -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command "firefox %s"
gconftool-2 --type=string -s /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/https/command "firefox %s"
