Windows 7: activating contact/email links

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
activating contact/email links

Sorry for the bad thread title...

I should know the answer to this but for some reason I don't.

When I upgraded to Windows 7 I lost the ability to click on a contact/email/mailto address in my browser (Firefox) and have my email program (Thunderbird) open up ready to send/write an mail. In Firefox > Options > Applications mailto is associated with Thunderbird.

Can someone walk me through or provide a link to resetting this?

Works for me. I just changed Firefox > Options > Applications mailto to use Seamonkey (my normal browser and E-mail program) and it works.

Perhaps uninstalling then reinstalling Firefox will fix it?
