Yes you have. You should google. You have to change a file called the prefs.js and add a couple of lines (also obtainable via google). then when you hit mail to links it opens thunderbird.
Anyway, this is basically what I did
To have Thunderbird open a link in Firefox, edit this file to read:
mingdao@james:~$ cat .thunderbird/u3rixsh5.default/user.js
// Use firefox for http, https & ftp links
I forgot how to get Firefox to use Thunderbird as Mail To: but if
you'll Google it you'll find it.
Don't recall if it works the other way round automatically, or whether you have to change something else. I'm pretty sure that that was all I had to do.
The prefs.js file is usually in the hidden thunderbird directory in your /home partition/directory.
