How to set yahoo email as the default mailto when it's not offered in firefox settings

more options

How do I set yahoo email as the default mailto when it's not offered in Firefox settings? I maybe wrong, but a long time ago Microsoft Edge kelp trying to replace Firefox and I had to get a Advance Uninstaller Pro to remove Edge. I think Microsoft removed part of Firefox, at lest Yahoo email from the setting as I've never seen it offered in Firefox Setting. How can I get it back? And I have no idea if the "Share Data" below is the problem.

Some time ago, Firefox stopped coming with Yahoo! Mail set up as one of the built-in mailto choices (Change the program used to open email links). So if you need to regenerate your download actions files (handlers.json) because it was cleaned/removed, that will be missing now.

Anyway, the old handler string doesn't work for me any more.

Back in the day, I posted an add-on as a workaround -- you right-click the link to generate the new email instead of using a regular click. If you don't find anything better, you could check it out:
