Are you running Gnome or KDE?  If so, TB might be passing off the

Thanks a lot Michael!
This one did the trick finally:

But I had to change the script openlink.sh so it would open the URL in a new tab:


export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME="/usr/local/moz1.7.12"

if [ ! "$url" ]; then
url="about :blank"

if $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/mozilla-xremote-client openURL\("$url",new-tab\); then
exit 0

$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/mozilla "$url"

exit 0

To sum up, what I did:

1. Install the about:config extension.
2. Modify network.protocol-handler.app.ftp, network.protocol-handler.app.http, and network.protocol-handler.app.https to point to a script in my ~/.mozilla-thunderbird called openlink.sh
