I am running Tbird 3.1.11 x86_64 edition and I have both https& http

with no problems.
I have these settings in about

The really strange thing is when I created those
setttings , and set them to /usr/bin/firefox they did
nothing at all. I found the suggestion to create them
on the mozilla forum. Then I accidentally clicked
on the https link at the bottom of some mail, and it worked, but only
for https. I then went into T'birds preferences attachments, and saw
it was set to run Firefox. I then added http also set to run
Firefox and it worked. So I still don't know for sure what

Can you check you T'bird preferences attachments and see what's in
there-I am curious.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean here but if you mean the settings for
http& https both say "use Firefox". If that's not what you need let me
know and I will try to provide what you need.
Yes, that's what I thought. I think these settings in about
don't do anything. I have since found out they worked in versions of
Thunderbird prior to the 3.0 series but do no longer work, at least
that's what people in the forums say. The key controlling mechanism in
current Thunderbirds is the preference/attachments config.
I haven't read those forums in quite some time so you are more up to
date than I am. The only lingering doubt I would have is if they don't
do anything why are they still there. I didn't upgrade from 2.xx to
3.xx, I moved from SeaMonkey to Tbird so it was a fresh install. I was
going to test by removing them but it seems the config editor will not
allow you to remove things, only change them. I imagine I could find
the file and do it manually but mine is working fine and now yours is
also, I decided not to mess with success.
