Protocol handlers allow links like mailto:nobody@mozilla.org to be handled by a webmail application.

In order to do that, the site needs to support a special API described on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web-based_protocol_handlers.

For en-US, we're currently shipping with GMail and Yahoo! Mail for mailto:, 30boxes for webcal: and Mibbit for irc: urls. For Konkani, we'd like to do that, too.

First, the localization team and flod (Francesco Lodolo) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Chandrakant, we'll need your input on this. The guidelines for making recommendations are on <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Firefox/Productization>. Following that, the evangelism team reaches out to try to get the vendor to support protocol handlers. http://people.mozilla.org/~ctalbert/ has test cases for mailto:.

Once that happens, flod will take over the actual implementation, which will need to change the gecko.handlerService.* entries in browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties. Please don't make changes to that file without getting a positive review by flod or somebody else appointed by flod/Stas on a patch for that change upfront.

The Konkani team and flod will be driving this bug to completion.
en-US default is fine!
