Protocol handlers allow links like mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org to be handled by a webmail application. In order to do that, the site needs to support a special API described on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/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. For Aragonese, we'd like to do that, too. First, the localization team and Milos (Milos Dinic) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Daniel, we'll need your input on this. The guidelines for making recommendations are on <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Firefox/Productization>. Following that, the evangelism team reaches out to try to get the vendor to support protocol handlers. http://people.mozilla.org/~ctalbert/ has test cases for mailto:. Once that happens, Milos will take over 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 Milos or somebody else appointed by Milos/Stas on a patch for that change upfront. The Aragonese team and Milos will be driving this bug to completion. The current state in the user repo has the en-US defaults, which is a good starting point.

What is the Catalan and Spanish status about this? There aren't any mail or webcal services in Aragonese language, I think that the Spanish set is a good approach.
Daniel, here is the list for Catalan: http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-release/ca/file/1642bca6ae9a/browser/searchplugins google bing huubs diec2 wikipedia-ca llibres and for Spanish: http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/l10n/mozilla-release/es-ES/file/d719d796650f/browser/searchplugins google yahoo-es bing drae twitter eBay-es wikipedia-es
You posted the searchplugins, and this bug is for protocol handlers.
err, Bug 800415
Daniel, both Catalan and Spanish(es-ES) are using default(en-US) protocol handlers: 30 boxes for webcal; Yahoo! Mail and Gmail for mailto; Mibbit for irc/ircs In case you found something more appropriate for your locale, then let's make it happen. If not, let's just stay with defaults, ok?
Then we can use the defaults too.
Excellent, closing this one, then.
