Clicking FTP link in a terminal gives a "not mounted" error

Bug Description

I use ubuntu 9.04.

There's no way to use FTP links from the terminal.

How to reproduce:
1. Open a terminal
2. Make anything that results in having any FTP link in the terminal, e.g. ""
3. Right click the URL
4. From the context menu, select Open

There's an error (in Polish) "Nie można otworzyć adresu "": Podane położenie nie jest zamontowane". It means something like "Cannot open address ftp://....: This place is not mounted".

It's not intuitive.

Left-clicking this URL just does nothing.

Please reopen this. It's reproducible in Ubuntu 10.10, which is supported until April 2012. Typical English error message:

Could not open the address “
The specified location is not mounted

Some context:
$ gnome-terminal --version
GNOME Terminal 2.32.0
$ uname -a
Linux redacted 2.6.35-30-generic #59-Ubuntu SMP Tue Aug 30 19:00:03 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
