Configuring Email Links in Firefox

If you run Mozilla Firefox under Linux, it does not know how to handle email "mailto:" links by default. You get an error about an unrecognized protocol or something along those lines. (Note: if you use Firefox in Windows, you won't have this problem. It's Linux-specific).

Newsforge has a nice little article on the Mozex extension, which you can use to configure the handling of mailto: hyperlinks in Firefox to call up your email client (amongst other things). I'll have to try this when I get home - I had trouble installing Mozex a few weeks back, but didn't bother to investigate the issue.
