Opening links in Thunderbird with Firefox

Launch Thunderbird and navigate to the Config Editor by clicking the following menu items:

Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> General -> Config Editor.

Right click in the list of parameters, select New and String in the menu.

A box appears, asking you for the preference name. Put :

network.protocol-handler.app.http

Click OK, the box then asks you for the value : set it to :

/usr/bin/firefox

Do it again for the preference named network.protocol-handler.app.https .

Note: Xfce4 users may want to set this preference value to "exo-open", which then will use the browser set up in "Preferred Applications".

You can now click on URL directly to launch them into Firefox !

Setting Firefox to open links in new tabs/new windows

You can change whether links are opened in new tabs or in new windows by opening up /usr/bin/mozilla-firefox in a text editor.

There are two lines near the top that say:

OPEN_IN=new-window
#OPEN_IN=new-tab

This setup will open URL's in a new window. Simply comment the first line and uncomment the second line to open URL's in a new tab!

Another way to do that is to select the right radiobutton in Edit/Preferences/Tabs in your Firefox browser menu.
