I think that web pages will normally open in a web browser. So I guess
at least that part will work without problems for most users.

And if the user have one of these add-ons I mentioned above a simple
link on that page can open a new message to send to the bug reporter.
(And that link may contain the relevant information about the bug.
Perhaps the whole bug report - I am not sure about text length limits

And if the user does not use web mail it will propably still work
since the default MUA will be started by the link on that page. (So it
could be a good first alternative that can work for most everyone.)
