So you get this e-mail and it contains a number of links to various web pages, you click on a link expecting Firefox, or your web browser of choice, to open only to get this annoying Launch Application window
User friendly it isn’t!
- Click Choose, a file browser window will be displayed
- Navigate to the /usr/bin directory, in Ubuntu Linux this is where the installed application executables are located
- Locate the file
firefox (substitute firefox with your own personal choice of browser)thunderbird
- Select it and click Open,
FirefoxThunderbird will now be listed in the above Launch Application
- Tick the check box next to Remember my choice for http links
- Click OK
That’s it, any further links of this type (http in this example) will open using Firefox.
To edit or display your Links in Thunderbird:
- From the menu bar select Edit > Preferences
- From the Thunderbird preferences menu select Attachments, from here you can change the way Thunderbird responds to each of the content types listed
One feature I think is missing from this preferences menu is the ability to manually add new content types and to clone/ copy existing, changing the content type to something else. e.g. clone http and make it https. As you can already delete content types by clicking on the association under Action this would be a logical enhancement.
