  • Copy and Paste the url below into your gmail url bar (note that when you paste the phrase javascript: will be gone. Please retype that in before pressing enter):     javascript:navigator.registerProtocolHandler("mailto","https://mail.google.com/mail/?extsrc=mailto&url=%s","Gmail"

Once you do this, a window should appear to allow handlers; click save.


If none of the above work, clear your cache and try again.
