The gnu.org home page suggested that questions about IceWeasel should
be raised on this list. Correct me if I should have headed elsewhere.

I'm runing IceWeasel on Debian Etch, and would like to enable
the mailto links on web pages. I've tried two approaches without
success, but will here mention just the last, which brings up Mutt,
and seems simple enough.

In /etc/iceweasel/pref/iceweasel.js I added the lines:

network.protocol-handler.external.mailto boolean true
network.protocol-handler.app.mailto string 
network.protocol-handler.warn-external.mailto boolean false

The executable script "handler-mailto-mutt" uses the Martin Krafft
script that apparently works OK for some.

When I click a mailto link, nothing happens. When I do $
handler-mailto-mutt, nothing happens either, although I know the
script is called.
