Here's my versions:

Digikam - 0.7.2
KipiPlugins - 0.1.1
Thunderbird - 1.0

The following is a script that I use to get Firefox to talk properly to 
Thunderbird.  Not sure if this helps...

# This script allows FireFox to send mailto: links
# to Thunderbird

THUNDERBIRD_REMOTE="/usr/thunderbird/mozilla-xremote-client -a thunderbird"

echo "Firefox mailto: $*" >> $HOME/log.txt

#Strip off the protocol as this confuses Thunderbird
MAIL_DATA=`echo "$MAILTO_URL" | /bin/sed -s 's/^mailto://'`

if $THUNDERBIRD_REMOTE 'ping()'; then
         $THUNDERBIRD_REMOTE "mailto( $MAIL_DATA )"
         #The mailto needs to be in the format mailto:someone at example.com
         #eg not mailto://someone@example.com
         $THUNDERBIRD -P default -compose "$MAILTO_URL"
exit 0
-- END
