Whenever I click on a link from Evolution, it always go through Konqueror first - then sends the file to Mozilla FireBird - even though I have MozillaFirebird at the top of the priority list.
OK, try this: Create a script to start Firebird using this code (I call mine MozFB) and put it in /usr/bin
/usr/local/MozillaFirebird061/MozillaFirebird -remote "openURL($@, new-tab)" ||
exec /usr/local/MozillaFirebird061/MozillaFirebird "$@";
Just change the directory locations to suit. This script opens Firebird if it's not open or opens a new tab in the existing window if it is.
If you are using Evolution as your mail client, edit the .gnome/Gnome file in your home directory to get Firebird to open links clicked. The .gnome
directory is hidden. For example: /home/<user>/.gnome/
If you are using Konqueror to view files, click on the View menu and click "Show Hidden Files". You should now be able to see the .gnome directory. The Gnome file is inside this directory.
Insert this section into the file if it doesn't exist or modify the existing one.
(Assuming you call the script MozFB).
That should fix it so that FB opens url's directly from Evolution.
