Handling Links with Firefox, Thunderbird, and Gaim
 
I would like to open mailto: links in thunderbird and http: links in firefox. I'm running KDE, and I'm pretty sure there's a way to do this, but I'm not sure exactly what it is.

Incidentally, my Gaim no longer detects firefox. It had recognized a previous version of firefox in its "Default Browser", but now I have to choose the browser manually and type "mozilla-firefox %s". The problem with this, however, is that I want firefox to open the link in a new tab, regardless of whether of not I have firefox running; the manual option causes another instance of firefox to run, asking me to load a profile, which is essentially useless. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

That worked for me. Course my paths were different, but as long as you substitute yours it'll work.
