[Bug 880834] [NEW] URLs in message body not opening in browser

Public bug reported:

When a message contains URLs, thunderbird successfully identifies and
shows them as blue, underlined text.  However, when they are clicked on
with the mouse, they do not launch a browser or even open a new tab in
an already open browser.  I would expect that blue, underlined URLs in
the body of a message would open in the browser.
