Recently I installed new Firefox 4 and was very pleased. I like the new look and the fact that there is a lot of plugins which are not available for Opera. My most favorite browser.
After a day of using it I faced a problem when I clicked on an e-mail link. I was used to be redirected into the FastMail account. Unfortunately there is no FastMail item under mailto actions in Firefox options.
Nevertheless it is very easy to add FastMail beside those actions. Follow these four steps:
- Open FastMail in new tab
- Go to Options –> Applications and select new FastMail action on the mailto handler
- Test new settings

Not working as of latest Firefox on Dec 2. FastMail doesn’t appear in the mailto: dropdown in settings after running the JS.
I was able to tweak this to work for me. I ran this in console. I adjusted:
1. http to https
2. Removed spaces that were converted to %20
3. changed fastmail.fm to fastmail.com
