Has anyone had trouble with Firefox/Thunderbird?
When I log on if I start Thunderbird first then I can't start Firefox.
Clicking on a link in an email fails to start Firefox.
If I start Firefox before Thunderbird then hyperlinks in emails open a
page in the existing Firefox instance.
Other users on this same machine are having the same problems.
This has been happening for that last sever
I would take this question over to Mozilla.org and not here at askubuntu.com except for the following:
This is a brand new install of Ubuntu, Firefox and Thunderbird.
On the same computer I also have band new installs of Firefox and Thunderbird for the Wondows7 partition. And they are running perfectly.
One of the Firefox lockups is totally reproducible.
Irritatingly, when I click a link in an application (I use Quassel), firefox opens the default start page.
I have a somewhat non-standard configuration setup. I am using a nightly build of firefox, where the binary is located at /opt/nightly/firefox. I have a symbolic link from /usr/bin/firefox -> /opt/nightly/firefox. I have Ubuntu 11.04, using Gnome with Docky.
Some webpages contain email links. If you right-click on the link in most Web browsers, a menu appears that lets you copy the email address to the clipboard (first screenshot). You can then paste the address into the To field of a new email message.
In recent versions of Mozilla's Firefox browser, you can also left-click on the link and get some action.
When on a web page, one can perform File -- Email Link.
Ever since upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04, Firefox will send the link to Thunderbird, but will not give the new email window the focus to finish the email.
If thunderbird won't open a link, either by clicking on the link or right click > open link in browser, these posts might help:http://chakra-project.org/bbs/viewtopic.php?id=4724I didn't create that topic, so I couldn't edit the topic subject to reflect the solution.
