default browser settings in Thunderbird changed by updates overnight
Clicking an html link from within a Thunderbird message now opens
Chrome. It has been set to Firefox for a long time. This appears to have
changed since yesterday, and last night I did run a huge number of new

Funny thing is, the settings in about:config in Thunderbird still
dictate firefox as the preferred browser:;/usr/bin/firefox;/usr/bin/firefox;/usr/bin/firefox

Checking "System settingsDefault Applicationsweb Browser" (in KDE)
also shows Firefox configured as default browser

Where else can this behavior be controlled. I would like to know which
package update caused this behavior to change so I can file a bug
report, but I'm not sure. Looking at the long list of updates last
night, there were updates for both Firefox and Thunderbird, but not for
Chrome. I can't imagine Thunderbird changing the defaut browser to open
from links, and the settings still seem correct.
