Yes, they do! :-)

No, they are not present in any install. I believe you rushed through
the material too quickly, John, and overlooked the instructions. Here
is what it says:
"If your Window or Desktop Manager does not allow you to configure a
default mail client, you can add a configuration parameter to Firefox
so that an email client will start when you click on a mailto: URL."
Notice it says you have to *add* a parameter. The instructions later
tell you what parameters need to be added and how to add it.
