Hi Larry, try going to kde's 'System Settings -> Default Applications'
and check that the web browser is set to firefox. Failing that you may
have to check what mimetype the urls are within thunderbird and use
'System Settings -> File Associations' to set that mimetype to firefox.
For me though setting the default browser in 'Default Applications'
usually works. One other thing to check is in Firefox's preferences to
make sure you have checked the option to make firefox the default browser.
