I'm actually not sure if its my default browser for ubunutu that I need to change or just for Thunderbird. I wasn't aware that I could have a default browser for ubuntu but I use firefox and thunderbird opens everything in chrome.

http://appnr.com/package/galternatives GAlternatives lets you set default browser, this solved the problem for me, some apps still opened firefox instead of chromium after setting the prefered browser via ubuntu menu
