Problems with Firefox and Thunderbird
Sorry I also posted this in Linux Desktops in error....
I'm currently running Thunderbird and Firefox under Mandrake 10.1 and KDE 3.2. I have two problems however. First If I'm emailed a llink to a URL (in Thunderbird) and click on it Mozilla loads instead of Firefox. I've looked through the Thunderbird settings, but I can't find a way to get Firefox to boot instead. Secondly if I'm at a web page in Firefox and there is an email link and I cllick it I get an error message that 'mailto is not a recognised protocol'.
Help on both issues would be much appreciated.

Or something. Anyway. Look at the source or look the link when your mouse is howering on to it what email address it is what it's trying to email to.
Backing Out of Firefox & Thunderbird to Mozilla
Firefox and Thunderbird should never have been released to Linux in such weak and less-than-XP versions, it is embarassing and frustrating.
That said, I need to know how to back out of these apps to Mozilla where things work and the browser and E-mail apps talk to each other.
I need to be sure that this process does not lose E-mail folders and content and integrates the data gathered by Firefox and Thunderbird together with the data still somewhere on the HDD from Mozilla prior to the failed experiment.
Is this possible or am I looking at hours of tinkering with questionable probability of success?
