When you add a irc:// url as a bookmark, mozilla 1.7 final dose not know what to
do when clicking it!
Mozilla says: file "" is of type application/x-irc
and asks what he should do: open with default app., open with..., save to disk

Mozilla < 1.7 (e.g. 1.7rc2) opened chatzilla with the correct irc-server and

I use the newest chatzilla from hacksrus: Chatzilla 0.9.64b

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add a irc:// bookmark
2. click it

Actual Results:  
The download dialog opens instead of chatzilla.

Expected Results:  
Chatzilla should open with the specified server/network.

Well if you try to open it with the default application, then mozilla.exe crashes.
Summary: mozilla dose not know what to do with irc:// bookmarks → mozilla does not know what to do with irc:// bookmarks
On Windows XP, this launches X-Chat for me, using build 2004-06-19-08.
