Description

Handling implemented in bug 793310. However, cannot save as homescreen bookmarks.
I think we need to be able to bookmark activities. So instead of bookmarking a link to mailto:dietrich, we bookmark a "open" activity for this url, with a nice icon and some text. That would be generic enough and will let 3rd party apps create new kind of bookmarks!

I think Francisco is looking at something along those lines to bookmark contacts on the homescreen.

I agree that would be cool.

However, we should still have this easy solution for basic schemes that the Web already supports.

Let's not scope-creep this bug into Activities (not standard) or future nice-to-haves.

WIP

just adding the schemes to the manifest.

noticing some weird stuff where the [done] button in bookmark UI is disabled, need to investigate.
Hi folks,

right, it's a feature that we are adding in 2.2, we already contacted Gregor and Kevin to do this, and Fernando Jimenez will be on charge of making this happen :)

I think we can make this bug duplicated of bug 1097768

(There are some specs and visual concepts on that bug)

Hei Fernando,

Could you to drop some ideas here as you are taking care of bug 1097768 ?

I am afraid that my proposal doesn't fulfill the requirements of this issue anymore, so it shouldn't be closed as dup of bug 1097768.

I am not saying that we shouldn't allow bookmarking activities. But I am afraid that just with that we cannot address the requirements of the contact bookmarks spec.
