Protocol handlers are a new feature in Firefox 3 that allows links like mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org to be handled by a webmail application. In order to do that, the site needs to support a special API described on http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web-based_protocol_handlers. For en-US, we're currently shipping with Yahoo! Mail for mailto: and 30boxes for webcal: urls, and we're on a ongoing evangelism effort to add more. Currently in the pipe are at least gmail and msn live hotmail. For Thai, we'd like to do that, too. First, the localization team and Mic (Michal Berman) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Isriya, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on http://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox_web_services_guidelines. Following that is a reach out by the evangelism team to try to get the vendor to support protocol handlers. Gen might be able to help out, too. Once that happens, Axel will take over in reviewing the actual implementation, which will need to change the gecko.handlerService.* entries in th/browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties. Please don't make changes to that file without getting a positive review by Axel or somebody else appointed by Mic on a patch for that change upfront.
As my knowledge, there is no local player in web calendar market. So the default choice (30boxes) is fine. Anyway, some of people I know use Google Calendar. For email, the top three (and dominated) email services in Thailand are also Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo. Current Yahoo! Mail is also fine.

Google Calendar is expected to land in subsequent 3.0.x release so we will pick it up then Hotmail, Gmail are also expected to land in 3.0.2 (hopefully release) tracking bugs: 444399 and 444395

There're some email service provider here, but incomparable, in term of usage, to those big 3, Google, Hotmail and Yahoo!.
So the conclusion is using en-US default, right?
(In reply to comment #4) > So the conclusion is using en-US default, right? > That's ok. Can we re-order the default reader for Thai localisation to be:- - Google Reader - Bloglines - My Yahoo
yes you can re-order to that no problem. I also think technically it's a matter of how you set it up in the properties file
per comment #5, I will move that to bug 443378 as that is where the RSS Reader discussion is and my comment #6 still stands for comment #4 that means webcal = 30 boxes for now and Google Calendar when they are ready mailto = Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail next step will be to land a patch (after you have your builds done)
Added Thai to the list of locales to patch for gmail and msn live, closing this bug out with fx3.0 en-US defaults.
