"GmailDefaultClient" extension is the solution of your problem that will give you the access of the mailto link and directly open the Gmail account as for the mailing issue. During the installation of this add on you will get a dialog prompting for the installation on your own risk as you trust. Click on the OK as you know that what you are installing. I think this will be the best one to use for the mailto . So if you like then install this extension for your browser. That all i have for you right now for more let me know the same.

As per my knowledge the problem that you are getting is with the mailto then i will let you know that Google toolbar has this option, everyone mailto link show be able to go directly into your associated Gmail account. So you don't have to look any where else for the same as discuss that you can get this with the plugin. So do the above and download the Google Toolbar. I hope that you will like this. Say thanks if you like the same. Thank you
