Hi There,

I have ff3 (compiled from source) and my links from tbird open just fine. I didn't do anything to make it work in ff3, I made the prefs change for ff2, and it works in ff3 without me doing anything.

my prefs.js
Code:
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "/usr/bin/firefox");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https", "/usr/bin/firefox");

Well, that's the exact same as in my prefs.js, but it still doesn't work... Aaargh...

Let me know if there's any other settings/info etc I can provide which might help debug this.

Right, I finally got it to work.

Things suggested in this thread did not work for me(editing prefs.js).

I found this: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=219444

It seems that when the protocol-handler for http/https is not set in thunderbird, it uses gnome defaults, so what is configured using gconf-tool and friends. That is wrong by default as well apparently, I got the 'Couldn't load XRE functions.' error. Running the following two commands from a terminal fixed it:

Code:

gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/http/command -t string 'firefox %s'
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/url-handlers/https/command -t string 'firefox %s'


It was set to /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/firefox which produces the error.

Thanks for the help tutaepaki!
