Thunderbird: Open link with different browser

I am just searching for convenient way to open links from Thunderbird in different Web browsers.

For FireFox there are good plugin Open With. I wish to have such addon in Thunderbird. I asked author   ... but no answer.

I in one year I searched the same problem and found a lot of requests/question for the same problem - :).

One of workaround that I use now - http://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/applications/461076-how-do-i-get-thunderbird-open-links-google-chrome.html

Copy paste from this forum:

* Navigate to "Edit --> Preferences --> Advanced" in the Thunderbird menus and click on the "Config Editor" button.
    * Search for the following three entries:
          o network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http
          o network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https
          o network.protocol-handler.warn-external.ftp
    * Set the value of each of these three entries to true (you can do this by double-clicking on each entry, then close the "about:config" window and click "OK" on the "Thunderbird Preferences" window).
