How to get hyperlinks in Mozilla Mail to open in Firefox


I've looked through the settings of Mozilla Mail and I can't seem to get hyperlinks to open with Firefox.Mozilla Mail seems to only want hyperlinks to open with Mozilla.
Is there a way round this?

thanks in advance,

I'm not too sure why you might want to use mozilla mail, but open the links in firefox - afterall, mozilla is more "fully featured", isn't it?

If it was thunderbird (the matching mail client to firefox), then you just search for your thunderbird files, you'd want the prefs.js file and then add something like this

user_pref("", "opera");
user_pref("", "opera");
user_pref("", "opera");
my prefs.js file is in the file:/home/john/.thunderbird/mb4eu9d7.default directory - you could always see if mozilla mail has something similar? afterall, thunderbird and mozilla mail are both mozilla app's.



p.s. Oh and if it is similar/the same, you'd just change "opera" to "firefox" and it should work!
