Firefox and Kmail

Has anyone managed to get Firefox to use Kmail as external mail programme?

I use opensuse 11.0 with KDE 3.5…, and Firefox 3

  • F Sauce,

in Firefox: Edit, Preferences, Applications. Search for “mail”


I have Firefox and there is no Applications tab there.

What I did in about:config (type this in the location bar)

set ** ** to kmailservice

Sorry for positing in the wrong forum, but thanks for the replies. And, should have mentioned that I have tried both your suggestions. I have edited the about:config and Firefox recognise Kmail as the mail client, however, it does not fire it up. I have followed walk-throughs (Firefox 2) and thought maybe, as Firefox 3 is quite new, that this were something that others had experienced as well
