Thunderbirds Are Go

So it's all been pretty quiet on the Mac front, because most everything that needs installing or setting up has been done. All that's left are occasional annoyances.

Of which, the one that's been puzzling me recently is how to get mailto: tags to bring up Thunderbird rather than the default Mac mail client.

To my surprise, this wasn't actually something that immediately popped out from a quick google, at least not for any combination of appropriate words I could think of. Eventually, I found a link that gave me the hint I needed—for Mac OS X 10.3, the way to set the default mail application is in Mail. So I loaded up Mail, went to Preferences pane and set Firefox as the default email application, and my mailto: links now seem to work fine.
