    url handling


    Slack 10.0, Windowmaker, no Gnome or KDE installed.

    Clicking on a url in Thunderbird does nothing. If I'd like it to fire up FF how would I go about it?

    is the firefox binary in your path?

    I have mine working via xchat irc urls, but not thunderbird as I dont have it installed, but this might help.

    The work around in this link will fix that problem.

    Cheers for the link.

    Question is where are the user prefs held, what file?

    I've got a ~/.thunderbird but there's no file containing anywhere that could contain the example in the link.

    There is a mime type rdf file which seems to have a similar function but my knowledge of xml isn't enough to create an entry.

    Any more ideas?

    In my Slack 10.1 system, prefs.js is located here:

    file:/home/michael/.thunderbird/oohj83rh.default/prefs.js

    This is the file to edit.
