Problem with "Send page..."

Avant browser 2012 buid 18
Windows Vista
Internet Explorer 9
Thunderbird 9.0.1

I don't know if it's really a bug, but the "Send page..." option doesn't work with Thunderbird.
The "send link" option works fine but when I try to send a page, Avant Browser launches a Windows Mail box!
Thunderbird is my default messaging program and I try to make the same actions with Internet Explorer 9... both commands work with Thunderbird!

Best regards.

Which rendering engine do you use under Tools>Default rendering engines?

Have you set Thunderbird as your email client in Tools>Avant browser options>Email client?

I'm using the "IE9 Standards" as default rendering engine and Thunderbird is selected as email client in the Avant browser's options.
The results are the same with the "IE compatible" rendering engine.

Thank you

Just downloaded and installed Thunderbird 9.0.1 and set it as the default email client of Avant in win7 and vista

Both the Send a link and Send a page work here.
Is it possible that the Thunderbird just pops up slowly?

The send link works in your IE browser?

Thunderbird 9.0.1 is selected as my default email in the Avant browser options.
But always the same problem... the send a link option works fine with Thunderbird but the send page option doesn't open Thunderbird but Windows Mail.
With Internet Explorer 9 browser, send page and send a link work both with Thunderbird.

Best regards.

Good evening

Thank you xiaobing for your answers.

My problem is resolved...
It wasn't a bug in Avant Browser, just an error with a registry key

Double click (Default) subkey in the right pane.
Type Mozilla Thunderbird as the value data. (the value data was Windows Mail)
Click OK.

Best regards
