this method is used to launch urls using OS registered applications when mozilla can't create a protocol handler for the url on it's own. This is needed for example when you don't have the mail/news component installed and the user clicks on a mailto url. We want to invoke the default mailto application on the Mac. this already works for windows.
mass move, v2. qa to me.

Need this to work even when mozilla CAN create the protocol handler on its own. I have the mail / news component installed because I want to use mozilla as my news reader. But I have a different email program, and no desire to use mozilla for email. Mozilla should ALWAYS check with internet config for who should handle a URL. If the user wants mozilla to handle it, they'll set that in IC.

This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported by mozilla.org. Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies there as well or resolve this bug.

RESOLVED/WONTFIX: Can soneone verify for me? Last I can remember, this worked on Mac OS classic. If you typed aim:goIM, it would launch the registered AIM application. That's what this feature is supposed to make happen right?
