Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.9) Gecko/20070118 Red Hat/1.5.0.9-10.el5 Firefox/1.5.0.9 pango-text
Build Identifier: version 1.5.0.9 (20061206)

You might want to include a file "thunderbird.desktop" like this:

--------------------------------------------------
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Thunderbird Email
Comment=Lightweight Mozilla-based mail client
Exec=thunderbird %f
Icon=thunderbird.png
Terminal=false
Type=Application
StartupNotify=false
Categories=Application;Network;
MimeType=application/mbox;message/rfc822;
--------------------------------------------------
(install it to "/usr/share/applications/")

details see http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/

This enables better desktop integration. 


Reproducible: Always

Builds from mozilla.org do not include any linux installer...

thunderbird could copy it into "${XDG_DATA_HOME}/applications/" on first launch... (not sure if that would help, though)

Example desktop file for Thunderbird

This file is currently from Ubuntu http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/f/firefox/firefox_2.0.0.8+2nobinonly-0ubuntu3.diff.gz
but will be in Fedora as well (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=384711)

Of course, the URL should go to
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/thunderbird/thunderbird_2.0.0.8~pre071022+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.7.10.diff.gz
