In my Thunderbird preferences, I have set chromium as default browser:
network.protocol-handler.app.https /usr/bin/chromium network.protocol-handler.app.http /usr/bin/chromium
But when I click on a link in email, instead of opening the URL in chromium,
Thunderbird starts a program
gio-launch-desktop, and what is its role and usefulness when opening URL ?
Is it possible to tell Thunderbird to start chromium directly ?
I am using
RBAC security control and this whole cascade makes it difficult to create simple rules. This situation where scripts are calling other scripts, calling other scripts in endless cascade (same as with
xdg-open) seems unnecessarily over-complicated.
