What system are you on? Under Mac OS X and under Windows, org-mode calls the program "open", which does exactly the same as double-clicking a file name. So on these two system, you should make Firefox the default Browser on the system level.

On a Linux or Unix system, this uses the Emacs pachage mailcap.el, so the settings mailcap has will be used to determine the appropriate viewer.

Hope this helps.

Hi all,

when I want to export and browse an org-file using the command C-c C-e
b, orgmode looks for a browser to display the exported html-page. I HAD
installed Opera, but switched to Firefox for several reasons. But now
orgmode still wants to use Opera as default browser to display the
exported html-page. Of course I have changed the browse-url-settings in
my .emacs file, so there is absolutely no reference to opera in my
.emacs. But whatever I do, C-c C-e b tries to start Opera (by calling
/usr/bin/opera) instead of Firefox, and then it exits abnormally with
"code 127" (I have no idea what that code means).

So how can I tell orgmode to use Firefox instead of Opera? Or does
orgmode depend on a hidden emacs-configuration-parameter? I feel
completely clueless... Any hint welcome!
