The solution is simple.  Install the addon Thunderbrowse, tell it you 
want to fix which browser opens when you click on Tbird links, give it 
the full path Chrome (usually /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome), press 
<enter> and click on Next.  You're done.  A matter of minutes, and it 
fixes the problem.
> 1. The arrogance of Thunderbird in making it virtually impossible to

> this (except of course FF is "their" browser). Their config option
> simply does not work (gets ignored).
