Default Cant load Thunderbird from Firefox.

Heres my problem. I have a mail button on my navigation toolbar in Firefox. When I click it and select read mail, nothing happens. But when I click it and select new message, a mail window from thunderbird opens up for me to compose a message. When I click the mail button in internet explorer, thunderbird opens up fine. Thunderbird is my default mail program. Does anyone know why it won't open up from Firefox?

Try removing the mail icon by VIEW/ TOOLBARS/Customise restore default set, close firefox. Open thunderbird, got to TOOLS/OPTIONS/GENERAL and make sure the use Thunderbird as the default mail application is ticked.
Close thunderbird, open Firefox and re-add the mail icon.
