In my sarge mozilla 1.7.8, clicking a mailto link opens the compose
window in thunderbird.  No extensions needed.  It just works. :)

I think this behavior is set by gnome-control-center -> advanced ->
preferred applications.  I do not use a gnome environment other than gdm
login and gnome-settings-daemon.  Openbox is the window manager.
