I've poked around a bit, but cannot locate where the decision to launch evolution when I click on a mailto: link is. I'm using the firefox browser, FC4 distro. TIA...

    How do I get "mailto" to launch thunderbird rather than evolution?

    Goto the URL about:config, and in the filter bar, type:
    Code:
    network.protocol-handler.app.mailto
    if nothing appears, right click in the white space, and goto New -> String and type in network.protocol-handler.app.mailto and press enter, then type in the full path to thunderbird and press enter. The effect should be immediate.
