Subject description: On clicking, they respond with a message similar to 'open with an application'
 

I have been having trouble with corrupted links on downloaded messages which on, clicking respond with a message similar to 'open with an application' and are unfathomable to me. I am running slacko 5.3 on a Siemens Fujitsu Esprimo desktop. For example; after receiving an email message (from eBay perhaps) and clicking on 'reply' I get a message similar to 'open with an application' which loses me completely. Has anyone any ideas on this?

Hi, I thinks that it's trying to open an e-mail client to send the reply, do you have any installed? (like Thunderbird or Sylpheed just to mention two).

Where do you receive your mails? I mean, in which program?
Saludos.

To Galbi. Saludos amigo! I am using the Thunderbird email client. As it happened my problem occurred with the email notifying me of this message: I down loaded the message to 'inbox' then clinked on the message from murga-linux. to 'open in browser' to be greeted with the message 'choose an application' .Additionally the screen says 'launch application' . Let me know if you need more info. Thanks, nettknut

Since TB has a built-in browser, instead of 'open in browser' try choosing 'open in a new tab'. What happens?

Edit: Sorry, my bad. To open in another tab, it's necessary to have installed the ThunderBrowse extension for ThunderBird.

Edit >> prefs >> attachments >> incoming.. What's the specified "action" for http(s)?

If it says "defaultbrowser" and links don't work, either TB doesn't know the path or you've got a sketchy extension.

It says firefox (Which is what I would like it to do) I changed it to "always ask" but it doesn't...

James, *carefully* work through the links I've left and I'm confident you'll solve your problem.

Thanks for the help. Well just acted dead so I tried to have it run defaultbrowser *Then double checked that clicking default browser started firefox. I made sure typeing firfox in xterm started firefox. All ok. But nothing. So I told it to always ask for both http and https and it offered firefox as an option and it worked?! I did this a couple of times then clicked "remember this choice" and now it works. I'm confused but happy.

That problem has been on my mind for weeks (months?) unresolved.

Boredom-based comments aside, I knew you'd get it James!
