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"
