It should not do so. It should display a lack-of-privacy message to the user and then send the mail in the backrgorund. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Test enclosed html. 2. Fill out the form. 3. Press submit. Actual Results: A compose window comes up. Expected Results: The mail should just go, after display of the usual warning message about e-mail privacy.
Sorry, the mail window _must_ come up so that the user can see what information is being sent. This is explicitly stated in the spec as regards mailto: links, and is common sense. See the discussion in bug 61893, particularly comments 10, 14, 25, 68, 71, etc.

I disagree. An request for comment IS NOT a specification. What does the W3C specification say?
RFCs are the only things that describe the functioning of protocols. The W3C does not do protocol specifications. While not all RFCs are specifications, some are. So in this case, that RFC is the only normative document describing how to interoperably implement mailto: urls. Perhaps you missed the part about "This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community" right at the beginning of the RFC?

Revisit: I mailto link should behave as Boris stated. However, I understood what I was talking about to be a form-submit. No reply needed. Leave bug as invalid.
