I make a little mistake. I build firefox/thunderbird with gnome vfs
support enabled. Maybe that, if you don't have gconf2 or libgnomevfs2
installed, external apps settings may work.
I send a PR about a mozilla uri helper script (now closed).
In any case, I'll ask gnome@ about:
- merge the uri patch to firefox/thunderbird
- take off the XFT knob
- make gnomevfs enabled in the default firefox/thunderbird build.
I honest think that this is the way to go, even for non-gnome users.
