199 <para>If your Window or Desktop Manager does not allow you to configure
200 a default browser, you can add a configuration parameter to
201 <application>Thunderbird</application> so that a browser will start when
202 when you click on an Internet/intranet/local URL. The procedure to check
203 or modify any of the configuration parameters is quite simple and the
204 instructions here can be used to view or modify any of the
205 parameters.</para>
206
207 <para>First, open the configuration dialog by opening the
208 <quote>Edit</quote> drop-down menu. Choose <quote>Preferences</quote>
209 and then click on the <quote>Advanced</quote> icon on the top menu
210 bar. Choose the <quote>General</quote> tab and click on the
211 <quote>Config Editor</quote> button. This will display a list of the
212 configuration preferences and information related to each one. You can
213 use the <quote>Filter:</quote> bar to enter search criteria and narrow
214 down the listed items. Changing a preference can be done using two
215 methods. One, if the preference has a boolean value (True/False), simply
216 double-click on the preference to toggle the value and two, for other
217 preferences simply right-click on the desired line, choose
218 <quote>Modify</quote> from the menu and change the value. Creating new
219 preference items is accomplished in the same way, except choose
220 <quote>New</quote> from the menu and provide the desired data into the
221 fields when prompted.</para>
222
223 <para>The configuration preference item you need to check so that
224 <application>Thunderbird</application> uses a specified browser is the
225 <parameter>network.protocol-handler.app.http</parameter> which should
226 be set to the path of the desired browser, e.g.,
227 <option>/usr/bin/firefox</option>.</para>
228
229 <tip>
230 <para>There is a multitude of configuration parameters you can tweak to
231 customize <application>Thunderbird</application>. A very extensive, but
232 not so up-to-date list of these parameters can be found at <ulink
233 url="http://preferential.mozdev.org/preferences.html"/>.</para>
