I'd like to be able to click on a mailto: link in firefox (iceweasel) 
and have it handled in another tabe by the round cube that handles my 
mail account.

I didn't see a way to add another webmail client in firefox 31.4.0, so I 
typed about:config in the location box and searched for mailto:, and 
found the entries for yahoo and gmail.

Since I have no gmail account I overwrote the name and uri there, 
specifying the uri I use for round cube on my account.

But nothing happened. Yahoo and Gmail still show up under Edit | 
Preferences | Applications | mailto:, although about:config does show 
gmail gone and my mail provider's uri in its place.

As well, Yahoo and Gmail had other stuff in the uri to reflect 
composition mode and the address to send to.

How do I invoke round cube from firefox passing the to address and 
starting a compose session?
