Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

This will allow the FDT (heh) to develop an action plan for the milestones between now and 1.0, prioritize bugs and so on. It's essential that people start doing this now, rather than later, otherwise bugs might slip through the cracks!" Further details are available in Ben's posting to the Firefox forums.

This is the key. At the moment, can Firefox usefully pass off a mailto: link click to an already-running mail client on Linux? Can a mail client pass off a URI load to Firefox? Does that require x-remote (which has some issues of its own)?

Are these issues low in importance? I'm not sure. I sorta like not having to copy and paste urls from all sorts of apps into the browser; it's better if I can click them where they are and have the browser deal. Firefox and SeaMonkey are both pretty bad at it so far. And it seems to me that improving this aspect of the browser is rather important.
