    Don't you just get a choice of what mail client when you click on a mail link, with a remember choice? i.e the feedback link at the bottom of the page.

    Certainly here I do.

    Edit
    Mmm misreading this I think I'm not sure any more what is trying to be achieved.

    Edit 2
    Ok found it in the menu same applies
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    Have it working on 10.3 and KDE 3.5 (FF 2.0.0.19).

    The only thing I did (IIRC) is setting in about:config the parameter network.protocol-handler.app.mailto to kmailservice.

    feather : i'm not sure what you're talking about : when do you get this box ?

    hcw : i added the about:config stuff, i need to restart firefox now to be sure if it works or not, what i'm looking for is to be able to send a friend a link pointing to an interesting web page i'm reading , this using firefox right click option (send a link to this page) and the mail being sent using kmail .
    It usually works from scratch with thunderbird when i right click and use "send a link to this page" option.
    Now i'm using kmail and this right click option does not work if you do not add some stuff in about:config
    Let me restart firefox so that i can tell you if hcw stuff worked or not

    *edit* : hcw, i tried what you said in os 11.1 and kde 4.2.2 KDE
    Version 4.2.2 (KDE 4.2.2) "release 112", it does not work for me

    I get it it either way whether I click on page or file and find it there.

    I do think it is the mail conf though. Also running vanilla ff no Suse tweaking.

    Any more tweaking ideas ?

    I used Edit/preferences / applications/mailto in firefox and put there /usr/bin/kmail , it now gives me 'use kmail' for mailto

    i have also have network.protocol-handler.app.mailto with /usr/bin/kmail in about:config
    There must be something missing still :
    When i right click on firefox it opens a new mail window in kmail but without the link from the website
