I propose a preference be added to Necko to allow specific protocols to be handled externally. The preference would be of the form "network.protocol-handler.external.scheme" which is boolean-valued. Patch to follow.
Comment on attachment 76106 [details] [diff] [review] Patch to nsIOService.cpp to consult prefs. r=gordon, sr=darin

Whiteboard: need checkin approval
Fix checked in to trunk.

What's the way of testin this?
Has the external handlers patch been added to the trunk? If so, where are there instructions for using it? I cannot find it in the Preferences. I would very much like to have mailto: and news: go to my dedicated apps.
The functionality is there but there is no UI to enable it so you'll have to manually set the pref. Details for mailto: can be found at: <http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0/faq/mail-news.html#3.3> External dispatch for news: can be added the same way.
What's the order of precedence? Can I override HTTP or HTTPS? Is there a target group of feature for this over-ride? If so I'll let them test it :) Also, can someone whoe understands prefs syntax look at the issues I raised in bug 163767?
