here's one way.
# in ~/.thunderbird/***.default/prefs.js
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.http", "firefox");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.https", "firefox");
user_pref("network.protocol-handler.app.ftp", "whatever-the-heck-you-use");

Note there's other ways of skinning this cat.  e.g. search a good
linux forums like forums.gentoo.org or go to the mozilla forums. 
there's dozens of posts if that one doesn't work for you.
