When I click on a link in thunderbird 0.4, my Konqueror opens.
I want Firebird 0.7 to open when I click on a link.

How do I do that.
I can't find that anywhere.

I think Konqueror is set as your default browser. Try this in Firebird via Tools, General - set as default browser.

No, if you've got Gnome installed, go to the Gnome Control Centre> Advanced> Preferred Applications and for Custom Web Browser: Command: type in /the/path/to/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird "%s"
If that doesn't work (it does it for me!) or if you don't have Gnome installed try this ... xurls.html

But I have the info, and will try .
