Opening links in any emails through Thunderbird was opening Firefox on my laptop. It would be fine if my laptop had a decent processor, but Firefox is so very sluggish on my laptop.
I already use Google Chrome as my default browser, but needed to change the settings in Thunderbird to open all links in Google Chrome.
To do this, open Thunderbird and go to Edit >> Preferences
Next click on Attachments.
Under Action select Use Other for both the http and https content types.
Now navigate to the following directory in your Linux distribution /usr/bin and select your browser from the list, in my case google-chrome.
That's it, Thunderbird should now open all links in your preferred web browser.
