User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130618035212

Steps to reproduce:

Currently there is no way to access URLs like about:memory from ChatZilla.  Those running CZ from within Firefox can just open the URL from Firefox.  But those that run CZ as a XUL Runner app have no such option.  In fact, clicking a link with the about: protocol will cause CZ to look for an application to open it with.

Actual results:

I have no way to open URLs using the about: protocol from within the XR versions of CZ.

Expected results:

There should be menu items and/or commands to open key about: URLs.  Some like about:mozilla and about:kitchensink are junk and can be skipped.  URLs like about:memory are a bit more important.
Perhaps these menu items should be in the Help menu.
