    Question How to get Thunderbird to open from Firefox


    In Mandriva free 2006 how do I get Thunderbird to open from Firefox? When I click on 'read mail' or 'send link' I get Evolution which I do not prefer. I've gone to 'Kmenu>configure desktop>components>components chooser>use a differant e-mail client' and set it to '/usr/bin/mozilla-thunderbird' yet Firefox still goes to Evoloution. What can I do to correct this?

    I tried that but it it isn't working yet. I set a string in 'about:config' 'network.protocol-handler.app.mailto'
    and entered several 'values' :
    /usr/bin/mozilla-thunderbird
    /usr/bin/thunderbird
    thunderbird

    as stated nothing works yet to solve the problem. Any help out there?
