TB is my default RSS reader. When I am on a website that offers a link to their rss feed (ex. http://rss.slashdot.org/Slashdot/slashdot) Thunderbird opens with a "compose message" window and does not display the feed contents. It also does not subscibe me to the feed or open the subscribe dialogue

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to any website with a feed and click RSS link (slashdot.com is good example)
Actual Results:  
the compose email window was displayed

Expected Results:  
contents of RSS feed is displayed or RSS subscribe dialogue is opened
