User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

When clicking on a mail to: link in Firebird Outlook express is launched.  I
have even uninstalled that as a windows component and thunderbird is definetly
set as default, but it still finds outlook express.  I opened internet explorer
(as much as I hate to) and found that it uses Thunderbird, but firebird won't
(something ironic about that).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run firebird with t-bird set as default (with outlook express component
installed or not)
2.click on e-mail link
3.outlook express comes up

Actual Results:  
outlook express launched

Expected Results:  
launched thunderbird
This is a Thunderbird bug.  Make sure you set from within Thunderbird, and use a
recent version and this is fine.

moving to thunderbird for appropriate triage/duping
