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

now, with no problems. When I switched from debian-thunderbird to
the upstream version (22.214.171.124) 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 following property:
to point to the firefox app.
I must not have been clear. I fully expect that the problem is with
Thunderbird and not Firefox. I looked for that configuration item and
did not see it. I will have to check again tonight, when I get the time
to check into it. I was about to add the line manually to prefs.js. I
also found a reference to setting network.protocol-handler.external.http
to false and setting network.protocol-handler.expose to true, as well.
I will have to look for these, this evening, as well. I will report
back if I have any success.
No boom today. Boom tomorrow. There's always a boom tomorrow.
What?! Look, somebody's got to have some damn perspective around here.
Boom. Sooner or later ... boom!
