    I want to launch Outlook every time I click an email link (mailto) but
    now Firefox launches Eudora, which I no longer use. How can I change
    this. Is it done somewhere on about:config?

    Not sure about other OS's but if you are using XP, just click on start >
    All Programs > Set Program Access and Defaults

    Should have mentioned that I'm using Win 2000.

    Look for "Set Program Access and Defaults" in Control Panel > Add or
    Remove Programs.

    All the other things about setting the default mail handler apply, in addition, I believe you will need to manually add this boolean value to about: config.

    network.protocol-handler.external.mailto

    set the value to True
