This may not be a bug but an error in my system. I cant set thunderbird to be my default mail app. This is the latest alpha build in windows and I extracted it after I uninstalled Mozilla.

The error said that I need administrator (which I am) priviledges to set up the registry key. So maybe, manually configuring the default mail in registry might do it.

Can anyone provide the location in the registry?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command

enter: <tt>C:\path\to\thunderbird.exe -compose %1</tt> (seems to be broken though - if clicking on a mailto: link, it doesnt paste the email address into the compose window...)

or just go to your system's Folder Options > File Types and search for the URL:Mailto protocol entry.

This doesn't work for me either... is this a known issue?
