I am running Etch and want to continue to use the branded Firefox (2.0)

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 (126.96.36.199) 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?
Are you sure you mean urls stopped working in FF? Not TB? If TB, then try going
into your preferences / Advanced / General / Config editor, and edit the
to point to the firefox app.
There might be a simpler way now, but that's how I did it with TB 1.4
