I just tested it with Firefox and unfortunately (or fortunately?) I
cannot reproduce the problem — Firefox gets the focus after opening a
HTML file. What is your desktop environment/window manager? It might
have something to do with this. My setup: Ubuntu 16.04 Server, XMonad, a
fresh ranger version from Git.
