When you first installed thunderbird you have been asked if you want
urls to be handled the debian way or the gnome way. gconf
configuration will only be used if you chose the gnome
way. Otherwise, x-www-browser alternative is used to open urls.
To reconfigure this setting run:
and select gnome.
If thunderbird still does not use your gnome preferred browser setting
(gconf), file a bug.
GPG messages preferred. | .''`. ** Debian GNU/Linux **
