See comments in bug 302213. To summarize, mailnews will actually throw on non-mailto: URIs that happen to have the type it's using, which ends up with no feedback for the user as to why their click did nothing... Mailnews should just use a custom channel impl instead of a custom nsIURIContentListener. Doing this depends on bug 229168, probably.
