Thread: Opening URLS in Thunderbird emails

  1. #1

    Default Opening URLS in Thunderbird emails

    Search the web tried a few different fixes and thus far all have failed.

    When i click on a URL in the body of a Thunderbird email nothing happens.

    If i right click > open in browser nothing happens.

    Firefox is my default browser set with the firefox application and i have also set firefox as my default browser within KDE and i have set defaults within Konquerer to open html files etc with firefox too.

    I have tried editing firefoxe's config too and nothing works.

    Firefox 3.5.6
    Thunderbird 3.0

    If i click on an email address within the body of an email a new email dialog box opens.

    Hope somebody can help me with this.

    I believe this is in fact a KDE problem, and it is solved when one updates to KDE-4.3.4 from KDE-4.3.1. Just wait a few weeks or so, and I think SuSE-GmbH plan to put in the "update" directory for openSUSE-11.2 a massive update from KDE-4.3.1 to KDE-4.3.4, and that update when applied to one's PC should fix the problem.

    I've found
    Edit --> Preferences --> Advanced --> General and click on the Config Editor button.
    network.protocol-handler.warn-external.ftp user set boolean true
    network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http user set boolean true
    network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https user set boolean true
