Hi,



Running Xubuntu 11.04 64Bit.

My default email application is Mozilla Thunderbird

and my default Internet browser application is Mozilla Firefox.



When I click on a email link (mailto in Firefox nothing happens?

How would I tell Firefox to use Thunderbird for email links?



Thanks...



Jesse

If thunderbird is installed you should find it in "others" (browse to /usr/bin/thunderbird)

Jesse,

I'm not on 11.04 (10.04 and Firefox 5), but look at
edit-->preferences-->Applications. Look for mailto in the content
column. For me the Action = Use thunderbire (default) and yes
thunderbird is mis-spelled. If it does not say Thunderbird you can
double click on it to get a list of options.


Hopefully it will be this easy to fix your problem.

Regards, Jim
