"How do you open-with a website?"

Is the following what you meant?

browser -url="http://editor.example.com/?localfile=%22myfile.txt%22"

Obviously then the browser needs to ask for permission for the website's JavaScript to read the contents of the file.

Much the same sort of thing should work with opening email links in webmail but, as you say, it hasn't happened much. Goodness only knows why. Enough extension writers manage to get it working.
