User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100308 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6 Build Identifier: Ubuntu 10.04 beta 1 When I click on a link, I get a choose opening application window, though Firefox is not an option. When I click on "choose application" it opens something that resembles the open document window. I am not sure if this has something to do with Shredder, or what Shredder really is, but I was not having this issue before Shredder installed on my computer. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Receive email with link in it. 2. Click link 3. Get "choose application" window Actual Results: Must copy and paste the link into Firefox, instead of the link auto-opening Expected Results: Auto-opened the link in Firefox Shredder is still on my computer, possibly because I am in the beta of 10.04 that may be why I am not updated to Thunderbird 3 yet. I am not sure if this is a fault on you guys or on Cannonical but it seems that it takes forever for a Mozilla update to appear in Ubuntu, if ever. I still have not gotten the Firefox 3.6 through Ubuntu 9.10.
Which version of Shredder are you running? Which Desktop Environment are you in? Please join us in #ubuntu-mozillateam on freenode for information on where the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird for Ubuntu can be found.

Version 3.0.5 pre I am running in gnome, but other than that, I am not sure what you mean by desktop environment.
Can you run gconf and make sure that you have a default web browser set ?
How do I find gconf, I tried the terminal and searched around in Shredder, but I couldn't find anything like that, and terminal told me that it wasn't an acceptable command

Tommy, can you follow the instructions mentioned in either of these articles to set Firefox as default browser of your system. To do it through command line: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WebBrowsers#Setting%20Default%20Browser To do it from UI: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/set-the-default-browser-and-email-client-in-ubuntu/
