It's browser-specific, of course, but here are some instructions for
hooking Firefox to Thunderbird:
I use KDE with Konqueror and KMail, which work together by default, but
if I wanted to change my default mail program in KDE I'd go to
K Menu > Control Center > KDE Components > Component Chooser
There, I can change my e-mail client to anything I want.
Now, this may not *quite* answer your question because these both depend
on running programs, not opening web pages. But it might be possible
to set the program to launch a web browser and open your GMail page...
