Introduction & Solution

If you are unable to launch Firefox (or another Mozilla browser) from URL links in a Thunderbird mail message,
or if you want to change the browser that is launched, add the following lines to the user.js file, located in your
Thunderbird profile folder (you may need to create the user.js file).
Remember to change the path of the Firefox executable, i.e /usr/local/bin/firefox .


user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "/path/to/firefox"); 
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https", "/path/to/firefox");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.ftp", "/path/to/firefox");
