mailto: isn't handled by default unless there's a mail application 
installed. Windows just happens to come with a mail application, and in 
Longhorn it'll come with a feed application just like Tiger does today. 
It has nothing to do with IE or Firefox, except you pointed out two 
excellent points that shoudl be filed in Firefox's bugzilla, I'm sure 
they can fix them by the next release.
