Bug Description

Tested under Ubuntu 15.04.
Not sure if this bug is in thunderbird oder chrome.

Thunderbird handles mailto links wrong.
It generates wrong addresses like '///<email address hidden>' (without '').

Clicking here should open a new email in Thunderbird with e.g. <email address hidden> as the recipient.

I tested it with firefox and it worked excellent.
So it has to be a bug in chrome.
