Fedora Extras has published today firefox and thunderbird packages for
FC1 and FC2. These packages have been heavily patched and polished to
integrate nicely into the Preferred Applications framework of FC2. This
means that you can go into the Preferences -> Preferred Applications
chooser, select Firefox & Thunderbird, and the GNOME desktop should
fully honor your choice of browser and mail client when clicking
hyperlinks in various programs of FC2.

Please follow the directions on this page if you do not already use
Fedora Extras. Report problems of firefox & thunderbird to
bugzilla.fedora.us.

FC1 users can also use firefox & thunderbird from the Fedora Extras
stable repository, but unfortunately the Preferred Applications
framework in FC1 is a bit broken. As a workaround you can run this
script as your non-root user to set your profile to use these two
applications.
