I think I found the key...
Authored by: fdan48 on Jun 10, '02 12:27:25PM

I tried for a while without success to get this to work. That is, until I followed the link back to bugzilla and read the full message. There were two other lines that should be included. The user.js file should contain all three of the following lines:

user_pref("network.protocol-handler.external.mailto", true);
user_pref("applications.mailto", "Microsoft Entourage");
user_pref("", "%username%@%host%");

Once I added the additional two lines it worked great. I presume you could replace Entourage with your favorite mail program. I think this because I put Entourage in place of what was originally in the bugzilla comment (some unix program).

It is recommended to put it in user.js instead of prefs.js because mozilla "may" modify the pref.js file without warning, whereas user.js is designed for users to set their own preferences that won't be modified by mozilla.
