You might need to change your preference for "mailto" URLs. See whether this works.

orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Applications

In the search box, type or paste mail and pause while Firefox filters the list. On the row that says mailto, try selecting Gmail from the drop-down on the right side. The OK out of the dialog and test again.

Does it work?
