From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc2) Gecko/20020510 BuildID: 2002051006 There are 3 issue's (one I reported earlier but it got status "not reproducable"): 1) From the messenger window (not navigator!): Preferences, "Mail & Newsgroups", disable/enable "Use Mozilla as default mail application" doesn't get saved (if changed) when pressed "OK" 2) When "Use Mozilla as default mail application" is reenabled(disable => enable) both the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command] and the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command] registry keys are not rewritten with the "...\mozilla.exe -mail" value 3) At installation only the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command] is written to the registry and not the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command]. This causes most internet application NOT to use Mozilla as default mail client. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install mozilla and register mail client as OS default mail client 2.Check both the [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command] and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto\shell\open\command]. 3. Remove both registry keys 4. First try to disable, enable "Mail & Newsgroups" from messenger. This doesn't work (not saved). 5. Try the same thing from navigator => Now enable/disable are saved but: 6. Check both registry keys => they don't exist Actual Results: Mozilla is NOT the default mail client (again) Expected Results: Mozilla should be the default mail client.
