[hi-IN] Firefox 3 protocol handler setup for Hindi


(Mozilla Localizations :: hi-IN / hindi, defect)

(Reporter: Pike, Unassigned)




Protocol handlers are a new feature in Firefox 3 that allows links like to be handled by a webmail application.

In order to do that, the site needs to support a special API described on

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. Gmail and ms live mail are coming up shortly. For Hindi, 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. Rajesh, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on Following that is a reach out by the evangelism team to try to get the vendor to support protocol handlers.

Once that happens, Axel will take over in reviewing the actual implementation, which will need to change the gecko.handlerService.* entries in hi-IN/browser/chrome/browser-region/ 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.

We currently have the 3.0 en-US defaults in there, which should be fine for at least a beta release of Hindi.
mailto: Gmail is okay
webcal: googlecalender will be fine
by Mistake put wrong entry.
for mailto: Yahoo! Mail default for en_US is okay
As per the chat on irc with Pike, 

If google calendar doesn't support protocol handlers 30 boxes is okay. I am also  ready for automatically adding gmail and msn live mail once those are ready.
Mic, this bug can be closed as soon as you have hi-IN on your list of locales for gmail/msnlive magic.
on my list, thanks
