Switching default email clients

I suspect this is depressingly simple, but it's got me bamboozled (maybe 
my second cup of coffee hasn't kicked in yet). I've switched from 
Sylpheed-Claws to Thunderbird as my email client. But whenever I click 
on an email link on a web page displayed in Firefox, I continue to get 
SC -- even though both gnome-default-applications-properties and Xfce's 
default applications configurator have Thunderbird specified as the 
default email client. I guess SC won't go away without a fight! Any 
thought on what to tweak?

With best regards,
