Submitted upstream to Ximian bugzilla...

This is almost certainly something libgnome/gnome-vfs related 
Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2003-11-18 10:26:51 EST
Works after I added a handler for ftp in Filetypes&Applications.
Same with https. Problems only for people, who do not have
gnome-control-center installed.
Comment 4 Mike Chambers 2003-12-26 09:04:48 EST
Yep, can confirm if you add the protocol to preferences/files and
programs that clicking on the link will work.  Maybe this needs to be
changed to mozilla to include this feature when compiled?
Comment 5 Julien Olivier 2004-09-06 04:23:26 EDT
Now that we can't edit File types & Applications anymore, it is
impossible to associate ftp:// protocol to anything if it's not
already done...
Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2004-10-15 10:44:08 EDT
There shouldn't be a handler for ftp:///. That breaks file-manager
handling of ftp uris. (It'll launch the app when you click on a subdir).

However, it should just automatically work (open the link in
nautilus). And it does seem to work fine for me on a fresh install of
the latest version of rawhide.
