Mozilla Thunderbird: How to specify browser?

I'm playing around with Mozilla Thunderbird on Debian sid. I don't see any
way to specify a browser in the Options dialog. I don't have Phoenix or
Mozilla installed here.

Clicking on a URL just does nothing.

Anyone know how to set the browser?

First, I apologize for not providing a link or file name, but if 
you go into

Tools-Options-Extensions

  and click on Get New Extensions.

Read through what's available and install that. That's where I 
found an extension that allows the function. There's a lot of 
useful stuff in there, too. I just downloaded everything and 
disable or disable as I want to try the stuff out.

I've not been able to find a way to specify browser in the bare 
install, but with an extension, it's done. But I'll be damned if 
I can remamber the details. :(


What I did after I got everything was to copy the entire folder 
to a spare folder someplace else in case  I delete the original 
working folder for any reason. That way you don't have to keep 
getting the extensions all over again.

BTW...I did this with a Windows version, and haven't done it with 
Linux yet, but the operation should be the same. Linux has me 
occuppied with other work for a while.

Firebird or Mozilla... Thunderbird or Mozilla...
I just got finished reading the roadmap to try and figure out if I would be better off stacking with FB and TB, or if I should install the Mozilla Suite. I cannot make heads or tails out of the roadmap. I cannot figure out what would be the best choice. Would someone here kindly outline the key decision issues for the two different paths?

I have just visited a site where I set up two BM servers, one is 3.7 and the other is 3.8, the ssl auth options were set up and work OK for IE browsers in windows, however the client wants to use Linux on the desktop but the only thing stopping him is internet access via BM.

Thunderbird Windows to Thunderbird Linux
I have a dual boot system set-up with Windows XP and Fedora Core 2.

Using Firefox or Mozilla Firefox as application name of web browser in Linux
Hi, Linux distributions like Fedora, Ubuntu and Suse use "Firefox" as the application name in their application menus(like this[1]). So, using just "Firefox" instead of "Mozilla Firefox" as the application name, legally valid or is this a legal issue about trademarks? As a Linux distribution (Pardus Linux[2]), we are discussing about this and can not decide what to show our users about the name of the web browser (Firefox or Mozilla Firefox). What is the valid application name to use in menus? Cheers. [1] http://www.linewbie.com/upload/linewbie.com...
