Thunderbird Configured to Open Links in Firefox

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

As you may remember, in my last post I stated that my only problem with Thunderbird was its apparent inability to open links in Firefox. This problem has been solved! Solution: When in Thunderbird, do the following:
Edit->
preferences->
Select the "Advance" tab->
Select the Config Editor at the bottom of the window.

When in the "Config Editor" :
Right Click->
New->
String->
Name: network.protocol-handler.app.ftp ; Value: /path/to/firefox

Again:

Right Click->
New->
String->
Name: network.protocol-handler.app.http ; Value: /path/to/firefox

And once more:

Right Click->
New->
String->
Name: network.protocol-handler.app.https ; Value: /path/to/firefox

Of course, set the /path/to/firefox as the location of Firefox (in most cases /usr/bin/firefox). This should configure Thunderbird to open all links in a Firefox window (or Tab if Firefox is already running). Hope this helps for some people that were in my same situation! Many thanks to the kind people @ MozillaZine.org forums who helped me get this!

If you want Firefox (right click -> Send Link)to use Thunderbird then...

In Firefox address bar:
1)enter about:config
2) if network.protocol-handler.app exists jump to step 5...

otherwise create it...
3) right click -> New string -> enter network.protocol-handler.app.mailto
5) Set the value to your Thunderbird binary file path, ie: /usr/local/thunderbird/thunderbird

this will work after you close and reopen firefox

thanx, great help. just one little detail, is there a way to tell firefox to open the link in a new tab instead of a new window in case it is already running?

Great work - thanks a million!

Don't know what "sexy" is doing here. That piece of chinese has nothing to do with Thunderbird, Firefox or Linux.

Bye the way, THANKS for your clear explanation.
