How can I have an email link on a web page open in gmail instead of outlook? Also, is it possible to have your browser (in this case Firefox) setup so that it will list a bunch of email clients when you click an email link on a page?

Use GMail Notifier. When you go through the installer you'll have the option to "use GMail for all mailto: links" and it will just work for you.

Your question is ambiguous, so here are two answers:

If you're the user of the link:
The Firefox answers that have already been posted are good if you want to control what happens when you click on mailto links on your computer.

If you're the author of the link:
You can't write a link on web page in such a way that when a user clicks the link, it will open using a specific application - that's determined by the user and whatever applications and settings he has set up.
