Not sure if those informations are the end of all that... On Windows, as
on MAC (I think), protocols are not registered in FF itself too.
I think what we need is a MAC freak, who provides the apple script (or
what ever is used on MAC for such things), that installs the protocol
handler on that system (for FF, Safari, IE Mac version, Acrobat etc.).

Maybe this helps??


That app would just have to call emacsclient..

Haha - Not everyone will want to do that I think :)
