Mozilla Suite has a built in mail program. Why should it link to TB for that
menu command? 

If you want to use your OS default mail program for mailto: links use the pref
network.protocol-handler.external.mailto with true.

Could not find network.protocol-handler.external.mailto in either prefs. Can you
be more specific on were to set this, or is there a gui way to do it?

Thank you.
There is no reasonable gui for that pref past about:config.

But this bug as filed is invalid.  That menu option opens up the mozilla suite
mail client, as it's supposed to.
