Firefox and Thunderbird

How can I make Firefox the default browser for T'Bird? It default's to Konquerer. I have a dual-boot Mandriva-Xandros box and Xandros defaults to FF. I can't send a page or a link from FF with Mandriva. Thanks.

Maybe this thread will help? I know it helped me.
It's for Gnome and Ubuntu, not Mandriva and KDE, but the same principle should apply.

The information in the link above worked. But to "send a link" from FF the following must be added to the FF "prefs.js file: "user_pref("", "/usr/bin/mozilla-thunderbird");" Path to Thunderbird may vary. Thanks!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
