Firefox cannot open IRC links in Pidgin

When I navigate to an IRC hyperlink, such as <URL: irc:// >, I would like Firefox to send the hyperlink to Pidgin. Firefox offers a list of applications for IRC and the only application offered is Mibbit. How can make Firefox show Pidgin in the list of applications?

when you click the link above. A Firefox dialog window appears which shows and chose an application option. If you don't want to use mibbit then chose the other option and tell the path (in windows) where your irc client's .exe file is located and check the box below that says remember my choice of irc links (if you want to use that application always) .

Hope it helps.
