hi,

in icedove i cannot open http(s)-links in iceweasel although its the only browser installed.

i checked

      Code:
:~$ update-alternatives --list x-www-browser
/usr/bin/iceweasel


and i also checked

pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http","x-www-browser");
pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https","x-www-browser");

any suggestions?

don't know why, but since i installed chromium as a second browser, now i can open links from icedove with iceweasel as the default browser.
