    Mailto links in Chromium will not open Thunderbird

    Hi,

    Lubuntu 12.04.

    The title says it all: mailto links in Chromium will not open Thunderbird.

    When I click the links nothing happens. My default email client is Thunderbird.

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks.

    I found an article and Chrome has a setting for protocol handlers and there is an add-on if you use Gmail. I see no way to add a computer based mail client in the manage handeler setting only web based. Perhaps you could look into it further. Settings > Privacy > Handlers > Manage Handlers
    “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can."

    Frogs Hair's suggestion... no joy.

    This is still an issue. Does anybody out there know the answer?

    Thanks.
