    When I click on a link in an email or news message, nothing happens.
    What setting do I have to change that will allow external links?
    TIA

    Thunderbird is not a browser. It will pass on links to the system
    default browser. If it is not, you may not have a system default browser
    set up. The setting is a system one, not in TB.

    So do you know where to set the system default browser in Win XP with
    all the updates? I'm drawing a blank and my Elements program wants to
    know so it can go online and I can look at the manuals. Anyone?
    Thanks Doug

    Assuming you have Firefox (1.5.0.8 here) installed:

    'Tools | Options | General | Default Browser', then tick the box, then
    the "Ok" button.

    Big duh to me. Thanks so much! For some reason, no default was set. I
    assumed I had it set for Firefox.
