    • Indeed, I have this problem whenever I include news: urls in web forums posts. In fact on my system they work seamlessly out of the box. But not everybody have a newsreader installed nowadays. And even if they have, not always is the system so smart as to call it on such urls.

      Sometimes, when I'm in a particularly non-lazy mood, I do include links to the corresponding Google Groups [google.com] entries. But this can get tiresome at times...

      Come to think of it, Google Groups' advanced search [google.com] supports searches by msg id. (Which is the tool I use to find those links.) Thus I wonder if there's a FF plugin that would call that when clicking on a news: url and there's no newsreader defined for the system. Actually I don't need it myself and I'm not motivated enough to search it...
