Firebird0.7, mailto-protocol and Evolution


I've installed Mozilla Firebird 0.7 and removed the Mozilla App. Suite from my Fedora-distribution, since Firebird is a better browser... and I wanted Evolution to handle my email.

And here is the problem: When clicking on a mailto URI I get the lovely message: "mailto is not a registred protocol".

I'm using the version of GNOME that comes with Fedora Core 1, and Evolution is set to handle emails via "Prefered programs" (Im using the Danish version, so this may not be the correct English name) and gnome-file-types-properties...

As fare as I can see, Evolution should handle the mailto protocol according to my system settings.

Does anyone know a workaround?

Kind regards
