Red Hat / Fedora :: HTTP Links In Thunderbird Doesn't Work

Jun 29, 2011

after updating to fedora 15, the http links in Thunderbird doesn't work.I have tried many solutions, but without result.
- in prefs.js add :user_pref("", "/usr/bin/firefox");
user_pref("", "/usr/bin/firefox");
user_pref("", "/usr/bin/firefox");- I have tried it with KDE and GNOME.
- move .thunderbird to .thunderbird.backup and reopen thunderbird. But still same problem.
- When I create a new user it works correctly! So I think it must be related to the update.
- I also change the default application (in System Settings) to google-chrome and Opera. But no result.
- http-links in other application (dolphin, nautilus, ...) works correctly

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Won't Open Http Links In Browser / Only Https

Apr 30, 2010

When I click on an http link in Thunderbird, nothing at all happens. There's no error message on the console, there's no new browser starting, and there's no new tab opening with the browser already running.

I've tried: sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser, choosing firefox.I've also tried: adding a new string value to Thunderbird's warranty-voiding config:, with a value of /usr/bin/firefox. This was recommended in various threads.But no luck.There's an entry for https - firefox on the Attachment tab of the preferences, and https links are indeed opening in Firefox. But not http.KDE 4.4.2 itself has default mail client and browser set to Thunderbird 3.0.4 and Firefox 3.6.3 (both from the repositories, no website downloads).

Is there another setting I should change?

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Not Opening Links In Firefox?

Mar 30, 2010

I have been having trouble getting Thunderbird to open links within my emails. When a link is clicked there is no response at all. I am running firefox version 3.6.2 and Thunderbird 3.0.3. After surfing the interweb and the forums I have tried setting the default browser through Firefox itself and through the preferred applications GUI in Ubuntu with no luck. I have gone into the about:config for Thunderbird and added the following lines: /usr/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox

Ubuntu :: Getting Thunderbird To Open Links With Chromium?

Jan 19, 2011

I'm having trouble getting Thunderbird to open links using Chromium (chromium-browser).

The default browser is now set to chromium-browser in KDE system settings. I've also tweaked the Thunderbird config and https settings to use chromium-browser or /usr/bin/chromium-browser.

Despite this, Thunderbird keeps opening links in Firefox. I'm bewildered as to why.

One thought is possibly an old GNOME system setting (there are .gconf and .gnome2 directories in my home directory, though I no longer use GNOME or have it installed on my system). But I don't know and I would have thought the Thunderbird config would have overridden that in any case.

Slackware :: Thunderbird Links No Longer Working

Dec 24, 2010

So, approx 2 weeks ago, clicking on links in Thunderbird stopped working. There is no response in the browser whether it is open or not. I am able to paste the links to the browser just fine. Being congenitally lazy, I would rather just click them. I have upgraded to the latest version of Thunderbird and have the same issue. I have tried using Swiftfox, Firefox and Opera - all give the same non-response.

Am not getting any error messages, the links just do not open. Can't find any settings relevant to this issue.Any bright ideas out there?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't View External IP Links To Http Server On Same Machine

Sep 1, 2011

I have an apache server running on my ubuntu machine. I can view them using my local ip ( And my friends can view the things hosted on my server using my external ip (example but when a friend links back to me to show me what they are looking at and share the moment, I can't view the link, it simply redirects to my router login page.

I had an older linksys router and this could work fine. I could click on the links with my external IP and it routes back to my server for viewing.

Remember to note that I am on the machine that has the server, and I'd like to be redirected out and back to it so we can share pictures back and fourth without me having to replace the external IP address with my local one just to view that link in the browser.

Fedora :: Kernel Build Links To Folder That Doesn't Exits?

Oct 7, 2009

I am having problems install VirtualBox and followed the errors to see that the link for Build (2.6.29) links to a non existent folder.

I also find it weird that there is actually a 2.6.30 kernel folder as well.

Not sure if this is just n00b issue, but VBox won't install and I was wondering why one of the kernels listed would link to nothing...

Fedora :: Some Links On A Website Don't Work In Firefox?

Apr 29, 2010

Recently Firefox is showing some but not all the links inside a page in a website that I use every day.Firefox had worked well in the past years with this site, so I made a few tests:- I tested the web page on Firefox 3.5.9 on Fedora 12. Some links missing.- I tested the same web page on IE8 on Windows Vista. No issues, all links there.- I tested the same web page downgrading Firefox to version 3.5.4 and downgrading the required libraries. Same issue, some links missing.- I compared the html code that the web server hands to both IE8 and Firefox. They are exactly the same.I don't know enough about html or javascript to understand why Firefox doesn't like some of this code portion.

Fedora Networking :: HTTP Does Not Work To Some Sites?

Apr 13, 2009

I can ping certain websites, such as, but I cannot access them via http (i.e. through firefox or yum). Some websites work through http, like Google, while others don't. The ones that don't are always the same.

What really hurts here is I cannot yum to all repos i'd like to. Since the same sites cannot be accessed through firefox, I imagine there is some underlying problem with my system's HTTP setup.

My windows machine on the same network works fine. I have had this problem since I installed Fedora 10 about 4 months ago. I'd rather not reinstall as nothing really seems broken (aside from this http issue), my system is completely up to date.

If I use a public proxy website I can get to the sites I can't connect to directly. I've followed a FAQ from mozilla for Firefox that hasn't helped, but I don't think its a Firefox issue since yum suffers as well. I also followed the fedora FAQ and I have been using OpenDNS servers.

When I try to enable it, it says could not contact fedora and it will be disabled. as to what is different between the two installs?

Slackware :: Doesn't Seem To Support Ssl Connections - Links-2.3pre1-x86_64-1 And Ssl?

Mar 15, 2011

I am using slackware64-current. I have installed the package links-2.3pre1-x86_64-1 and I love it. I launch it from the command line with the "links -g" switch and it can display pictures, it's great, but it doesn't seem to support ssl connections.

Am i doing something wrong or do I need another build? I know that in the past there used to be two different binaries, is it still so? Where can I find a ssl-enabled binary for 64 bit without need to recompile?

General :: Links Don't Work After Mount?

Jul 26, 2010

I work in a lab when all the guys use PCs with Windows and access the lab linux servers via ssh.

I prefer linux, so I have a local installation of ubuntu 10.4 on my PC. I mount the home of our lab server using mount server:/home /mnt/home/. I can then access the files on the server (I had to change my local UID to match the one assigned to me on our server in order to be able to write to my home dir).

The problem is all the (symbolic) links I have on the server don't work when I access them through the mounted location. I guess the system simply tries following the link in my local /home instead on server:/home.

Software :: Can't Seem To Get Javascript To Work In Links

I can't seem to get javascript to work in links. According to the documentation, there should be an entry in the setup menu for javascript options, and I don't even have that. I'm using slackware 13, and it came with links 2.2. I thought maybe it wasn't installed with javascript support, so I downloaded the source (2.3pre1) and reinstalled it:but still no javascript options in the menu.. and I verified that I was running the new version.

Ubuntu :: Https Works - Http Doesn't ?

Sep 7, 2010

I have my Linux laptop running Katatonic Koala at the moment. It is connected via CAT5 to a switch. The switch then connects to my router. All five of my computers are connected to the switch, actually. The only one that won't talk to any sites other than https secure sites is the Linux box. I am not well-versed in the inner workings of Linux and need some help in what I need to do so that regular http sites work. You guys always have the right anwers so I will wait humbly for your replies.

Ubuntu :: Resources Links Don't Work Any Longer?

Oct 23, 2010

Since I've moved the /home directory to a new mountpoint

(UUID=160b687f-3e30-472e-97c2-7fd6149ec2a0 /home ext4 nodev,nosuid 0 2 in the fstab menu)

I have troubles with the links on the places menu. all the links there that point to /home or to one of its subdirectories don't work any longer.

The links to usb drivers and other places work just fine.

I've tried reinstalling xdg and gnome-menu, but no success.

if I do cat .xsession-errors right after trying to click on one of the links in the menu this is what I see:

giulio@giulio:~$ cat .xsession-errors
/home/giulio: /home/giulio: is a directory

General :: Cannot Get Links To Work From Internal Webpage

Jun 6, 2011

I just setup my first Linux box using [URL] everything went along fine except now I have a problem that I cannot seem to solve. I've set up a webpage on the box for my company's intra-net for testing purposes but I cannot get the links to work. On the server itself all the links work but Firefox still ask me to authenticate with the Adobe Flashplayer (player10), but when I access the page from another computer I have the following issues:-

1. Even though hostname -f shows the a fully qualified domain name I have to use the IP Address eg.
2. I can access the page but the links leading to the other pages do not work I get "Webpage cannot be found or the HTTP 404 Not Found" Error Message
3. None of the embedded pictures show up I get the red X.

General :: Symbolic Links Between User Accounts - Cannot Get To Work

Jan 7, 2011

I have been using a cron job to duplicate a folder into another users account every day and someone suggested using symbolic links instead although I cannot get them to work. In summary user GAMER generates log files that they want to access via HTTP, however I only have a web-server in the user account SERVER, in the past I would copy the logs folder from GAMERS account into SERVER/public_html/. and then chmod the files so the server could access them. Trying to use symbolic links I set up a link from root (as only root can access both accounts) I used: ln -s /home/GAMER/game/logs/ /home/SERVER/public_html/logs

However it seems that only root can use this link, I tried chmoding the link, all the files in the gamers /game/logs/*, /game/logs itself to 777 as well as changing chown and chgrp to server the files still cannot be read. When viewed from servers account my shell shows the link and where it is to hi-lighted in black with red text. /home/GAMER/game/ (chmod & chgrp) drwxrwxrwx 3 SERVER SERVER 4096 2011-01-07 15:46 logs
/home/SERVER/public_html (chmod -h & chgrp -h)

Ubuntu :: [10.04] Links In Firefox Don't Work Until Move Mouse

May 4, 2010

It appears that clicking on a link in Firefox doesn't work until you move the mouse, i.e. if I put the mouse on a link and hold it stationary and click the link, nothing happens, but as soon as I move the mouse, the link then activates. Sometimes, I have to double click the link to get it to work. I've read some posts where people claim that Firefox "freezes" until you move the mouse. In my case, Firefox doesn't "freeze" in the traditional sense. It just that clicking a link doesn't behave properly as it should. I didn't have this problem in 8.04LTS (or previous distributions for that matter) only in 10.04LTS. I'm running the 32-bit version on a Dell Latitude D600 laptop with nvidia-common driver 0.2.23.

i have a Realtek RTL8192E Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC card on my Samsung r580 laptop that i just installed Ubuntu studio 10.04 on. I am wondering how to get the wireless card working in Ubuntu. I saw some info on my card here *url #1 (the urls i reference are in the attached txt file called urls.txt because i couldn't post the actual urls because apparently i need to post 15 times or something which i don't have time for at the moment)* and then i went here to download ndiswrapper *url #2* and both of the links on that page don't work. I followed the instructions on this page *urls #3* to get the info on my card. here is the info when i typed "lspci -knn" into the terminal in ubuntu studio.

Ubuntu :: Links Browser Script - Automatically Fills In The Credentials On The Links Login Page?

Dec 6, 2010

At my Uni, we use a web-based login for our internet connections. Its based off of Cisco, and every Wednesday night every computer on campus must re-enter their credentials to use the network.

Normally on my several computers I simply pull up the Terminal, point links to using


And enter my credentials when Cisco redirects to the login page.

Literally, the process is


Then ENTER to accept the redirect, down arrow to skip over the logo image, USERNAME, ENTER, PASSWORD, ENTER, ENTER.

Naturally, this is EXTREMELY time consuming, as I have about 5 computers located around campus and must physically walk to the machines and login every single week.

My question is, How would I formulate a program that does the following;

1) checks for connectivity (i.e. is able to reach/resolve to the greater part of the internet) and

2) automatically fills in the credentials on the links login page?

Programming :: Scripting : Change Markdown Links To Wikitext Links?

Feb 3, 2009

I have a personal wiki of notes, with now thousands of links in markdown format:

[link text](

but now that fckeditor is available for mediawiki (very beta), it has become much better to just stick with wikitext format. There are only a few conversions to do: tables, links, and bulleted lists. The lists are a fairly simple regex and fckeditor magically reformats the tables, so all I'm left with is the links. But I'm not a regex master. How do I reformat code...
