Re: Default application. How to?

That helped. Thanks. Thunderbird now starts mozilla-firefox. I added
preferences (3rd solution) to my user.js. I don't think editing prefs.js
is recomended. And user's personal preferences in user.js are read at
start time and copied over to prefs.js.

I configured x-www-browser to use mozilla, but Thunderbird still
starts Epiphany for http:// links.
See the Debian Thunderbird FAQ
Thunderbird does not properly handle http & https links. What to do?
Three solutions are described.
Earlier you wrote:
I use Thunderbird, so clicking on mailto: links should open
Thunderbird(for different applications). Right now nothing happens.
Gnome users can use the default application configuration
tool included in gnome-control-center. Set the default
Mail-Reader Command to: mozilla-thunderbird -compose %s
It continues with more options, but this works for me. I use
gnome-control-center to manage settings, but I don't use gnome! I use
openbox for a window manager and fspanel for a panel which makes for a
very lightweight desktop and fast performance on this old P3 128mb box.
I normally use KDE or IceWM. I tried using "component chooser" for KDE,
but it works for KDE applications only, i.e. if I clicked an email link
from Firefox/Mozilla it wouldn't open Thunderbird for me, whereas
clicking an email link from Konqueror opens Thunderbird.
I also tried using similar options in Firefox to the ones used for
Thunderbird. It does not open thunderbird but gives me an error message:
Error launching browser window: TypeError:
