It is GNOME, but Iceweasel/Firefox has always handled mailto links
natively in the past. And it shows every appearance of doing that
now, as the Preferences/Applications page has an option to choose
Gmail to handle mailto links; it's just not working as it should.

That's set to evolution which I never use. (And which is not invoked
for mailto links in Iceweasel.)

Iceweasel's application details says the mailto link points to gmail
on the web as one would expect.

It's available to me on my testing (which I guess is wheezy) system.
Thanks for the suggestion. I may try it, although I think it's a bug
