Binary package hint: thunderbird

This thunderbird error is given when clicking a mailto link. Instead of
using the thunderbird that's already open it tries to open a new
instance. Preferred Applications has Thunderbird select, but I have also
tried Custom command "thunderbird %s". This has been tested on 10.04 and
10.10. Both result in this error if thunderbird is already running.

Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new
window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or
restart your system.
