firefox email

I was on a web page and wanted to use the send mail link. It kept bringing up the win 10 mail app as opposed to Thunderbird. I had to copy the address and create a new message in Thunderbird. How/where do I set Firefox to use Thunderbird? Thanks

Hi. Are you using windows 10? Have you set thunderbird to be your default mail client? If not, here's how.

Go to settings with windows I. Type default apps in to the search field. Arrow down to default apps and press enter. Tab through until you hear the button for default mail client. Press spacebar to activate the button. Tab to Thunderbird and press spacebar to choose thunderbird. Alt f4 to close. Now thunderbird should come up as your default mail client.

I believe you have to set your default email account to Thunderbird in Windows settings.
Did you also set Firefox as your default browser?

Always look out for #1, and be careful not to step in #2.
