I assumed (wrongly) that the default applications was setting the
defaults universally. I mainly wanted to initiate Firefox on
Thunderbird e-mail links.
I will pursue this fix within Thunderbird.

As a side note, under Ubuntu 6.06, in Thunderbird all of my links went to Firefox when Firefox was identified as the default browser. In Kubuntu 6.10 with Firefox 22.214.171.124, the button to check whether Firefox was the default browser is inoperative (not inactive.. just doesn't do anything). This is probably scope creep from my original bug report.
