Associate Email Links With Gmail in Firefox (Natively)

The Google toolbar already provided a feature for this, but you can also do it right in the latest version of Firefox*: associate “mailto” links in web pages with Gmail, so that when you click on e.g. you’ll be instantly forwarded to create a new message in Google’s email client. Open Tools -> Options -> Applications, and look for the entry titled “mailto”. In the dropdown box, pick Gmail. Note this didn’t work here, but it worked for some of you.

[Thanks Adrian L.!]

*I’m not sure when this was added to Firefox and whether it’s completely new.
