Works as well as ever for me with Windows XP; I put it that way as the known bug for "complex" mailto:" links still don't work, but even using Run as you did takes me directly to the compose module of Tbird, as does clicking on a mailto: link in Firefox.

(It may be that, as this worked before the installer version of Tbird, my registry settings were already proper.)

Or it may be my abortive attempt to change the default location on my previous install confused the installer next time around. That would imply uninstall didn't uninstall that registry setting. But I suspect it's not setting it at all.

It added 3 more icons? Really? What were they? We should only add a single icon for launching the app.


The 3 icons that were added were shortcuts to Thunderbird. I already had an existing shortcut on my desktop and it added 3 more shortcuts to Thunderbird.

I just ran the installer again and it did not create the 3 duplicate shortcuts. It must have been something with my machine.

Delving into regedit...

HKCR\mailto\shell\open\command
(Default) REG_SZ C:\PROGRA~1\THUNDE~1\THUNDE~1.EXE -compose %1
That's from my previous install, by the look of it. Manually changed to
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -compose %1
and it works.

HKCR\Protocols\Handler\mailto
CLSID REG_SZ {3050f3DA-98B5-11CF-BB82-00AA00BDCE0B}
Not sure what uses that but it refers on to %SystemRoot%\System32\mshtml.dll. Several bits in the registry point to URL:MailTo handler.


I think what's happening here is as follows:

1) you are already the default client using a .zip install which was installed into Path A.
2) You install thunderbird whcich uses a different directory path by default so now you have bits in Path B. The installer adds a bunch of keys to register thunderbird as a mailto protocol handler pointing to Path B.
3) However, the installer does not re-mark thunderbird as your default application. So we are still using the default app values written from the build in step 1. So the actual mailto protocol handler in HKCR is still the build from step 1. If you open up the new install in Path B and force it to remark itself as the default mail client, I bet this 'fixes' itself.

I'll see if I can make thunderbird re-prompt about not being the default client in this scenario.

I large number of mailto: links are broken in Thunderbird right now. See bug 231032 here:

Well, I selected custom install, and then selected to install offline support within installer, but when installation was copleted, there was no offline support :-( Later, I had to use offline.xpi from my hard disk to add offline support :-)

in your installation directory there should be a couple of .log files which report on the progress of the install. Any errors there about offline.xpi?

Excelent! I love the installer.
My only complaint (same with Firefox installer) is that there is no option on WHAT icons I want created or don't want created (quicklist, desktop and program).
Besides that, AWESOME!!

I can confirm this. I have exactly the same messages in the install_status.log. Offline support is a no-show for me as well.
