Change Thunderbird default browser in XFCE

XFCEI had to change the default browser in Thunderbird but there was no clear way to do that, recently I found the solution.

I’ve tried to update the alternatives with

update-alternatives --config x-www-browser

but it just got ignored, the solution is to change the settings in Thunderbird’s config editor (Preferences > Advanced > Config) and search for network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http and network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https and set them to true, this will ask you what browser Thunderbird should use to open the links, just check “remember the setting” and set your preferred browser.
