Thunderbird doesn't open links


I've just installed Thunderbird 1.0 on my system (SuSE Linux Personal 9.1) and I can't open URL links in messages unless I copy and paste. There are a number of workarounds on the Mozilla Thunderbird forums for other distros, but none for SuSE Linux. Anyone have any experience of this problem, and any suggestions about waht to do?

Yes, you need to install "Launchy" from the mozilla web site.

Tried this but it doesn't work I'm afraid. Launchy only works in Windows apparently.

Alternatively, on the Thunderbird site there are a number of instructions, one of which is on opening links in the browser.
