I'm using Firefox 40 on Windows 10. I moved to Inbox a few days ago and I love it. My question is: how can I have Firefox use Inbox for mailto: links?

I know this is possible with the standard Gmail client as that's what I'm doing right now.

    I'm voting to close this question because Inbox by Gmail was retired in April, 2019 and is no longer available. – ale Jul 3 at 14:20

I just confirmed this is possible using the current version of Firefox, 47.0, and the MailtoWebmails addon.

  1. Install the MailtoWebmails addon by going to the URL above and selecting the Add to Firefox button
  2. This should open a new tab, if it doesn't then manually go to about:mailto?discover
  3. Scroll down to Inbox, select Install, then make active.
  4. Click on a Mailto link and an Inbox compose window will open.
  • Unfortunately, this extension hasn't been updated for FireFox 57 / converted to a WebExtension. Need a new solution in the modern world! )= – ELLIOTTCABLE Aug 13 '18 at 13:27

It's available now, I just confirmed it. https://plus.google.com/+BrianCalderon/posts/4jcFyeyWt4V.

    The post you're citing shows Chrome's web event handler; it's not obvious whether the same would work in Firefox. – user79865 Jan 9 '16 at 4:41
