  Was very tempted just to say yes :)
However


1) open the following URL in Firefox:
about:config

2) set the option "network.protocol-handler.external.mailto" to true

right click and set a new string to

3) Create the option "network.protocol-handler.app.mailto"

ok to that.

Then in the next window set it to preferred mailer eg kmail

Don't put in the quote marks though
