Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

When I click on a URL in a Thunderbird message, it does NOT invoke Firefox, and
then bring up the page for that URL.  Earlier version did.  Instead I have to
click on (invoke) Firefox first, and then click on the URL.  Once Firefox is
open all is OK.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on any URL in a Thunderbird message, when Firefox is not open.
2.Nothing happens.
3.Open Firefox first, then click on any URL and the correct page shows.

Actual Results:  
Click on the URL in Thuderbird and it doesn't invoke Firefox.

Expected Results:  
When Firefox is not open, and I click on a URL in Thunderbird, it should invoke
Firefox and show the correct page.  Instead Firefox is not invoked.  In Ver 1.05
and earlier versions this worked OK.  Default theme.
