Under KDE 4.7 I have "chromium-browser-chromium" set as my default browser in system settings.
This works for KDE apps, but not Thunderbird. I suspect that Thunderbird is looking for the default browser in a GTK type config place, rather than a KDE setting.
So while KDE apps open links in Chromium, Thunderbird (I am currently in tb6.0, but the same behaviour happens in previous versions) opens links in Firefox.
I know I can force the issue in prefs.js but I would like to get thunderbird to respect the system setting. How can I do this?
