[other] IRC Links, Xchat and Firefox

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Thanks to this tutorial - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=25372 - I was able to associate IRC links - the links I usually find on the intenet are mostly like irc://xxxxxxxx.net - to xchat when I click on them while surfing in Firefox: now, when I click on a link in the browser, xchat starts up and shows me a list of channels - like #Debian #Ubuntu #Firefox ecc ecc- BUT it does not connect to that particular channel I clicked before. It seems like I got to associate that kind of file with xchat, but when I click on a link the client does not open that link, it just starts as normal. (Hardware)
