Email Link no longer works.

I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.10 (Santiago)
firefox-60.1.0-6.el6.x86_64 and
thunderbird-52.8.0-2.el6_9.x86_64
that are the latest available for my distribution.
I believe the firefox is the one I just received in the last day or two.

Now the File->Email Link no longer works. No error messages, no nothing.
I restarted both Thunderbird and Firefox, but that did not help either.

Is Thunderbird still your default eMail client?  Please check that 
first.  This is normally a settings in Thunderbird under Advanced tab 
and General sub-tab.

I had the problem a while ago.  I had to go into Firefox preferences and 
specify the application to use for mailto: links.

Having Thunderbird configured as the default email client wasn't sufficient.

Thank-you. That fixed it.

I wish they would quit changing the default settings for things.

You're welcome.  :-)

I had assumed that it was something that $work changed to break mine.

It was a place holder and a way of saying that "something that 
$myEmployer changed" without specifying who $myEmployer is.
