Firefox and Thunderbird together


After the release of Firefox 1.0 I have heard a lot of people enjoying that Thunderbird and Firefox can work together so well. If you click on an url in Thunderbird then Firefox opens it and the same with mailto-protocol in Firefox (before it said to me that the protocol was unknown).

I am using Firefox 1.0 and Thunderbird 0.9, none of this is working. And no errors are returned to me. All that happens is: nothing. I click a link in thunderbird... nothing happens. The same when I click a mailto-link in Firefox, nothing.

Don't I deserve the same symbios between these two?

Yeah, I knew that already, since I have been running PR for a while that was the first I checked out when I upgraded to 1.0. So I am sure about the versions. :/

Sorry, just checking. This might depend on your desktop environment.

Yeah, you may be right. I have fluxbox and maby those "better" guys who deserve the symbios are using KDE or something in which they can "communicate" with each other. :P

Well, I guess I will just have to live with having to copy the url instead of just clicking. :P

There must be a way to make it work, just have to figure it out. But I do think fluxbox vs kde may play a role, though I am not sure how to fix it yet. Maybe someone more experienced with fluxbox could help.

I'm using Firefox-0.9.3 and Thunderbird 0.8 and it works
to click on a link in the bird and open the fox, but I had to
hack it. You can also hack the fox to open mail in the bird,
but I didn't care to do that.

My computer is in China, and I'm now in the States, so I
can't tell you how I did it - but if you search LQ for threads
in which I posted (I didn't start the thread), you can find
the answer. There is a link in that thread to another forum
where someone posted the hack. It didn't work for me at
first, but it does now - so I'd suggest you read the entire
thread so you can see at the end what was done.

And btw - it works in Fluxbox - flush KDE down the toilet -
reminds me of Micro$loth!
