icedove/thunderbird: how to rid off opera as default browser

Somehow (not sure intentionally or not) opera browser dig deep in icedove (thunderbird) internals and somehow hard to remove.

Normal way to change browser is to replace link from x-www-browser via alternatives, but in my case it was not enough. Even network.protocol-handler.warn-external.http in depth of configuration was not work.

After long wandering around I found reason.

~/.icedove/$profile/mimeTypes.rdf contains opera as handler of http/https:

<rdf:description rdf:about="urn:scheme:externalApplication:http" nc:prettyname="opera" nc:path="/usr/bin/opera" />
<rdf:description rdf:about="urn:scheme:externalApplication:https" nc:prettyname="opera" nc:path="/usr/bin/opera" />
<rdf:description rdf:about="urn:scheme:http" nc:value="http">
  <nc:handlerprop rdf:resource="urn:scheme:handler:http" /> </RDF:Description>

...after removing them (close icedove/thunderbird prior changes) all problems solved by themself.
