Don't mind the downvotes on this, the answer it provides is still correct. Follow the steps above, and you will be able to get Thunderbird to open links in your default browser (mine is Chrome Beta).

could just put the add-on thunderbrowse in the wizard it allows to set the default browser to open links.

add explanation for each step.

if follow you blindly may be a risky job.
