T-Bird won't open URL
 
I'm getting the following error when I click on a URL in Tbird.

This is the 3.1.10 Tbird from F14 using Aurora browser (yeah I know,
it's broken and I get to keep the pieces).

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure
code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)
[nsIExternalProtocolService.loadUrl]" nsresult: "0x80004005
(NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame ::
chrome://communicator/content/contentAreaClick.js :: openLinkExternally
:: line 188" data: no]

Anyone have any words of wisdom?

Thanks,

John

Close thunderbird and go into ~/.thunderbird/yourprofiledirectory

edit mimeTypes.rdf and find the stanzas that refer to the browser. Look
for http and https Here are mine for chrome:

<RDF:Description RDF:about="urn:scheme:externalApplication:http"
NC:prettyName="google-chrome"
NC:path="/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome" />
<RDF:Description RDF:about="urn:scheme:externalApplication:https"
NC:prettyName="google-chrome"
NC:path="/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome" />


replace the chrome stuff with the stuff for your browser.
