How to have hyperlinks open a compose window in plain text?

In Thunderbird, I have "Account Settings / Composition and Addressing / Composition / Compose messages in HTML format" unchecked, and when I click "Write" in Thunderbird it opens a plan-text compose window as desired. However if I'm using FIrefox and click on a website's contact email hyperlink (e.g. ""), it opens a Thunderbird compose window in HTML format rather than the plain text that I want. How can I change the default to plain text?
