Hi,

I have installed Pale Moon but in Prefs Apps there is no mailto: so I can use TB as the email client for Send to.

PM support says TB should have Registered it on install.

Any help please ?

Win 10 1809,
PM 28.40 64 bit,
60.5.3 32 bit TB

Thanks

oz

Well, not quite. It's an option. That registry setting would be appropriate only if the user chose to set Thunderbird as the default email client upon installation. https://pchelp.ricmedia.com/change-defa ... indows-10/

Many thanks.

Went and checked if TB was still the default and I was surprised to see that it wasn't ! Have chosen it since TB started !

Maybe on a Win 10 update it sneakily put it back to Mail. Never trust M$ !

Set it back to default and Pale Moon's 'Send to' works perfectly.

Again, great support. Thanks Dan.
