When I try doing mozilla/dist/bin/thunderbird -no-remote news:rec.games.pinball, I get an error to the effect that said URI is not a file. After doing some research, it looks like bug 287345 incorrectly assumed that anything hitting that statement was a file and not a URI. I believe this impacts shell integration for Linux, but I can't say about Windows or Mac OS X.
Created attachment 496775 [details] [diff] [review] Patch (standard8's idea) Bug 287345 introduced the issue probably, so what we do here is just revert the previous behavior in case the code from bug 287345 failed to take effect.

Comment on attachment 496775 [details] [diff] [review] Patch (standard8's idea) Although we could try being a URI first, and then try and be a file, but I don't think it really matters too much.

Should this fix be in http://mxr.mozilla.org/comm-central/source/mailnews/base/src/nsMailNewsCommandLineHandler.js instead? I think SeaMonkey would be happy to get it too.
(actually, never mind -- that file wouldn't handle your command-line at any rate.) We really should have a proper spec for our command-line stuff. :/
