    This returns to a matter I had thought I had solved after getting advice
    on this newsgroup. I want to get MozillaFirebird to call up my e-mail
    application when clicking on an e-mail address while on line. I looked
    for an extension but none seems to work. Is this simply not possible
    right now? Is there a feature being worked on?

    I think it reduces substantially the utility of a web browser if it cannot
    cooperate with an e-mail application.

    Thanks

    How did you set Firebird up for an external mail program?

    Thanks

    I looked for the mozex preferences example and tried it. Nothing. I
    eliminated everything before the name of the email application and entered
    evolution -s %s %a and got the evolution application, but not the message
    editor with the address entered. Something is missing. What?
