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.

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.

I will resolve this bug as WONTFIX in four weeks if no action has been taken.
To filter this and similar messages out, please filter for "mac_cla_reorg".

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?
