Here's a thing. People have started creating their own URI types. like
skype:// Skype
msnim:// MSN Messenger
These usually launch an external application from your browser. Now quite apart from this being a somewhat dubious practice, that last one is a classic. If you install MSN V7.5 it makes the necessary registry changes so that IE6 knows what to do about it. But surprise, surprise it doesn't also register for Firefox so links that use it don't work for non-IE browsers.

Proprietary extensions to the web. DonchaJusLoveEm?

So if you know how to register a new protocol and URI scheme in firefox, do drop me an email at julian_bond at
