We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=421192) and believe that it is
more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.

Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.

Thank you for the bug report.

From the upstream bugzilla:
> I don't think that ever worked, you can use either of
>  thunderbird -compose to=mcepl@redhat.com 
>  thunderbird mailto:mcepl@redhat.com
