phpBB developer Henry Sudhof reported that when an image tag points to a resource that redirects to a mailto: URL, the external mail handler application is launched. This issue poses no security threat to users but could create an annoyance when browsing a site that allows users to post arbitrary images. This issue has not been fixed in Firefox 3.0
