No, but I have a patch in <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=173954">bug 173954</a> that adds basic Send Link functionality via mailto:.

There are two ways to do this with ContextMenu Extensions:

1) Create an external application definition to run Mozilla [or other email program. The params for Mozilla are
-quiet -compose "subject=%C,body=%S"
This will take your selected text and put it in the subject line and put the URL in the body of the message.
There may be a problem with commas in URLs and I haven't tested this so some kind of quoting might be
required.

2) Create a custom script to do the above. With a custom script, it's easy to get the Page Title so that you can
pop that into the subject line to save a bit of work.
