User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040626 Firefox/0.9.1 I use KDE 3.3.0-2.2.2.kde and wanted to use KMail as my application for handling mailto: tags. There appears to be no way to set this in Firefox (Edit->Preferences no longer handles this in Firefox). But Firefox ignores my system default settings in KDE to have KMail as my default mail program and insists on opening Evolution. I was required to leave KDE and log into Gnome to set a system wide 'mailto:' handling request for KMail instead of Evolution. Firefox should look for KDE's setting of this item, not insist on using Gnome's settings (since I never use Gnome). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
At present, this is a WONTFIX. We're not going to implement arbitrary UI for mailto handling, any sane OS has a service to handle various protocols. We're using the GNOME shellservice at present, just like we're moving to GTK filepickers etc. This is, of course, because we're a GTK, not a qt, app. If the qt port spawns a Firefox port for KDE, then someone can write a KDE shellservice for that port and use the KDE system default.
