Both products do not match BLFS instructions. Maybe in some installs
these preference names are present but not in mine, Firefox is looking
for network.protocol-handler.app.mailto and Thunderbird is looking for
Neither product has their corresponding configuration preference name.
Thunderbird and Firefox both start with
network.protocol-handler.expose-all as the first alphabetical entry for
What I had to do was, once in the configuration sections for each
product, right click and select "new" to add the new preference name as
a string, and then the value.
Now Firefox and Thunderbird work correctly for me. Thanks for getting me
pointed in the right direction to figure this out.
