opening URLs in Firefox from Thunderbird using upstream programs

I am running Etch and want to continue to use the branded Firefox (2.0) and Thunderbird. I do not want to switch to Icedove and IceWeasel. I have been running the upstream Firefox 2.0 for a while, now, with no problems. When I switched from debian-thunderbird to the upstream version ( urls stopped opening in firefox. They have, in fact, stopped opening in anything.

I have made sure that /etc/alternatives/x-www-browser is pointing to the proper firefox binary and I don't know what else to check. I can not find any configuration option, or preference, that says where links should open, only where html attachments should open. Can anyone tell me what I am missing?
