If on the other hand, Firefox is already open, when clicking on a web-link in Thunderbird, Firefox will open a 2nd tab and display the link.
Any ideas how I can resolve this bug please?
Are you using Warren's Firefox 9 package? The cli command below will show which version of the firefox package is installed, if you're not sure post the results of it.
I never was able to get thunderbird to correctly open url email links in firefox with the firefox installed by Warren's FF9 package.
Back in January the solution I suggested was to install Stevo's FF9 package from the Mepis 8.5 CR repo. At this time I would recommend installing FF11 from the Mepis 11.0 CR testrepo instead of FF9.
