Using Thunderbird and Firefox from PortableApps. When I click on links in Thunderbird, they open in Firefox (tried both ver.2 and new ver.3), but without any of my user preferences.
From Gmail web page in Firefox, clicking a link to an EE question will open in new tab, autmatically remember me and have me logged in.
From Thunderbird, the link opens the EE page in Firefox, but no login, no bookmarks, no tabs or shortcuts. Very annoying, since EE loads the bubbly cartoony theme, and wants to pop-up advertising until I login.
Is this some "feature" of Thunderbird to open a stripped-down browser (no prefs, passwords, etc.)?
