try deleting the first 2 and then restart T-Bird and try again.

See this link: 
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Changing_the_web_browser_invoked_by_Thunderbird


It has a way to launch a browser of choice when clicking links. I used 
this method to invoke my "not system default" browser and it is working 
fine so far.


--- snip from kb ---
You used to do this by setting the path for the browser with 
the*network.protocol-handler.app.http*and*network.protocol-handler.app.https*settings. 
While that setting is normally associated with Linux, it worked under 
Windows and OS X too. With recent versions you need to 
set*network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http*and*network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https*true 
and chose the desired browser from a popup window instead.

Yeah, I just tried using your file on my VM and it works fine for me.

Well, at this point one thing I would do is create a new user on the system and 
use
it to start T-Bird and define a email account and test in a "clean" environment.

Oh, and one more thing before you do that

Exit T-Bird
Start T-Bird
And then do the strace followed by clicking on the link.

Need to see if it ever reads the mimeapps file.




ok, thank you Ed, appreciate the help

Could you bring up T-bird.  Then find out the PID of
/usr/lib64/thunderbird/thunderbird process.

Then in a terminal session do

strace -p  -o somefile

And then click on a link.

Then ctrl-C the strace command to quit it.  Then examine what is in the 
"somefile" to
see if you can find anything of interest or upload it so it can be checked.

Also, it seems from my testing, that T-bird gets the information as to what 
launch
from your .config/mimeapps.list.  Can you post yours?

The relevant portion from my strace shows

Well, that's odd.  Your strace file shows no occurrence of "mimeapps" or 
"firefox".

That would seem to suggest there is some sort of T-Bird setting getting in the 
way.
Or, potentially, an extension.but I don't see any indication of an extension
being called.

I just noticed that in my running T-Bird which I had already opened links from 
it
doesn't re-read the ~/.config/mimeapps.list file.  (My previous test was in a VM
where T-bird was just started and no link had been clicked on)

So, could you post yours?

Hummm  When I do the gtk-launch it simply launches FF and exits.

I've never seen that error message before.

Does...

xdg-open http://fedoraproject.org

produce a similar error?  And does it open the URL?

no, I do not.

Yes, it does. On the term, it includes this:

###!!! [Parent][MessageChannel] Error: 
(msgtype=0x150084,name=PBrowser::Msg_Destroy) Closed channel: cannot
