The new Helper App feature doesn't include the ability to open mailto links with Mozilla Thunderbird, Portable Edition, dosn't it?

Nope

Launching mailto links doesn't use Firefox's helper app setup. It just tells the operating system to launch a mail link. Firefox does nothing related to mail internally. You can't change how Firefox handles mailto links without a complicated extension. It would be nice if it were just a setting in about:config or mimetypes.rdf, but it isn't.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

It's all because

The link isn't a file, it's a full URL (or maybe URI).
