When I opened the configuration page this morning, the entry that was
missing 'firefox' was not there, so I right-clicked and created a new
string network.protocol-handler.app.http clicked OK then entered
firefox in the next window, clicked OK, closed Thunderbird rebooted the
computer then attempted to use a link. When I clicked on the kubuntu
list email address it opened, however, when I attempted to open the
kubuntu list website from the bottom of an email, it would not open the
browser. Additionally, there is only one entry showing in the
configuration (attached png). How would I remove the previous attempts
so that I can start over. I must have made a mistake somehow.
