howto get firebird to open link in mozilla mail instead of mozilla?

I am using Mozilla Mail and Mozilla Firebird for email and internet and when I click on a html link in an email it loads the link in the other mozilla browser because it is the default. How do I cahnge it to open the link in Firebird? I checked the Prefs but could not see anything. Also..

I tried to install Moz Thunderbird but it wouldn't work because of no glibc_2.3. Thunderbird is version .1 and Firebird is .6. My glibc is 2.2.5. Do I have to compile glibc 2.3 for two hours just to get this to work or is there something simple that I am overlooking? I thought because Firebird worked, Thunderbird would also work. Thanks

I think that you need to change your mime links. If you are using KDE then go into the Control Center (kcontrol) -> KDE components -> File Associations -> text -> html and put Firebird at the top of the Application Preference Order
