Finally. This is more than annoying.
<http://forums.opensuse.org/applications/425619-cannot-launch-url-thunderbird-3-04b-firefox.html>

Config editor:
network.protocol-handler.warn-external.ftp       default   boolean   false
network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http     default   boolean   false
network.protocol-handler.warn-external.https default boolean false

Change all of those to "true".

Oh, and for those of us that loathe gnome, edit 
/usr/lib/thunderbird/open-browser.sh to, right after

# No URL specified so set to blank
url=$1
if [ -z $url ]; then
     url=about:blank
fi

Add:
exec firefox -new-tab "$url"
exit

and all is good again.
