This is a follow up from bug 424687.

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 Bulgarian, 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. Ogi, 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 bg/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.

There has been talk about adding in bug 424687 comment 7 as mailto handler. Ogi, could you follow up with them and make sure they pass the test cases on
Ognyan, can you confirm that you're ok with en-US defaults described above? then we can add a patch and close
