Protocol handlers are a new feature in Firefox 4.0 that allows links like mailto:email@example.com 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 GMail and Yahoo! Mail for mailto:, 30boxes for webcal: and Mibbit for irc: urls, and we're on a ongoing evangelism effort to add more. For Bosnian, we'd like to do that, too. First, the localization team and Stas (Stas Malolepszy) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Kerim, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Firefox/Productization>. Following that is a reach out by the evangelism team to try to get the vendor to support protocol handlers. Once that happens, Stas will take over in reviewing the actual implementation, which will need to change the gecko.handlerService.* entries in browser/chrome/browser-region/region.properties. Please don't make changes to that file without getting a positive review by Stas or somebody else appointed by Stas/Sethb on a patch for that change upfront.

Hey Kerim, Let's work on this one this week. Need help? Just ask me or find me on IRC and we'll work together.
Can we use the same ones from the en-US locale since there are no special web services in Bosnia that we could use instead?
Sure. Please check if there are any differences between current bs setup and enUS, and in case there are, update your working dir, and submit a patch here and flag me for a review.
No differencies, they are exactly the same, so we can close this and move on to the next.
Yeah, for sure. Thanks Kerim!
