Firefox: share weblinks and send mails with Mutt

Firefox and Mutt are my favourite applications for web browsing and checking mails respectively. But until last week I could not make them communicate, e.g. for sharing link/title of a website, or writing mails to mailto: URLs.

In order to solve this once and forever, I have written the following two scripts: and, and I installed the Email This! add-on, pointing the mailer to the first script from above (

The 2nd script takes into account, that the addresses that mutt is using are all in a file named .mutt/addresses.rc. The script sends a blind copy of the mail to the the address alias "ich" for archiving.

And that was it! The mailing through mutt accepts all aliases defined in mutt! That's speed!
