The "mailto" feature isn't available for all browsers and for those who
provide it, ensure that it's either the used default or at least
available by the list of mailers. I doubt that your users (the OP's
users) know the path /usr/bin/claws-mail. However, for Firefox this
indeed is the easiest solution. It requires to view the menu bar or to
customize the "Open menu"-thingy, assumed a menu bar is unwanted.
