But, if you are asking how to do it in extension code

1. write a temp.html file with a URL 
   redirection javascript and run it
   (you can use run function at
    http://jslib.mozdev.org/libraries/io/fileutils.js.html )

2. when somebody clicks on a link in the html
   displayed on <iframe> or <browser>
   TB opens it in the default browser.
   so do <meta> refresh tag and <form> submit
   I used this in QuickManager. But it is broken
   now need to fix it
