It should work.  Perhaps Thunderbird isn't on your PATH.  Open a Konsole 
and execute:

	which thunderbird

If it is a path issue, you can put the command with the full path in the 
Control Center KCM -- but don't use $HOME, use the actual path.

If you use a script your script the command in the script should be:

	$HOME/bin/ "$1"

Note: you have to put the parameter in quotes (as I show), otherwise it 
won't work if there is a space in the URL.
