User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5

I´ve installed both firefox and thunderbird, with symbolic links in /usr/local/b in. When I click on links in mails (in thunderbird) firefox is used as a browser (I don´t know how this works but it does). But clicking mailto links in firefox results in evolution being opened instead of thunderbrd. IMHO the corresponding "mozilla suite" application should be tried before any other apps.

Reproducible: Always
