    Problem with Firefox when using mailto

    mmesarina
      Hi,

      I have a button that when pressed it calls the getURL(mailto...) function to send an email. When I test the movie however, I get the following error: "FIrefox doesn't know how to open this address because the protocol (mailto) isn't associated with any program" .
      So I wrote an HTML form that uses "mailto:" to send an email, open the html in Firefox and voila , Outlook comes up and shows me the "message" ready to be sent, when i press the send button".
      So Firefox alone DOES recognize that mailto: protocol is associated with Outlook, which it should b/c i checked the HKEY_CLASSES and I can see that Outlook is registered as the default mail program.

      So has anyone run into this problem?

      thanks
