    I find that my thunderbird which I love defaults to Safari which is
    becoming so slow, I quit without reading messages. Thanks o:)

    Open Safari. Go to Safari/Preferences/General/Default Web Browser.
    Choose Firefox.

    That will do the trick but could it be your Safari is getting slow
    because of the bloated cache?
    ( Safari>Empty Cache...)

    Launch Safari, then set the Safari Preferences (Command-comma) ,
    General, Default Web Browser to Firefox.

    And if you want Firefox to pass mailto: links to
    Thunderbird, then Launch Apple's Mail, then set the Mail preferences
    (Command-comma), General, Default Email Reader to Thunderbird.

    PS. At work, I use Firefox and Thunderbird, and have used the above to
    preference settings to do exactly what you want.
