I have just installed Autopatcher (full version) and the Dec Jan & Feb updates on my XP home system.
Now any links in a mail message in my Thunderbird refuse to open in Firefox when they are clicked on. I now have to copy & paste any link address in Firefox to open them.
This is a pain as they automatically opened before.
This was working before the install, so a setting must of altered in the config of thunderbird.
I am at a loss as to which setting in the config editor to alter.

Thanks in advance:help:

I posted on the Mozillazine forum and the answer was to uninstall that pesky IE7
which was obviously installed by Autopatcher.
I Have now unstalled it and the links in Thunderbird are now working perfectly

Another workaround/fix is to make IE7 the default, then FF the default, back to IE again then lastly FF again.
