Set the preferred browser in Edit->Preferences->Tools->Browser.
Normally by default it should be something like x-www-browser on Ubuntu
so it should use the default's browser on the system, but you can change
it to whatever command you'd like, like "firefox".

Alternatively a less slick method is to set the execute command to
something like:

	firefox "file://%d/%f"

instead of the default "builtin", but this will open a terminal window
in addition, which will probably be annoying.

Hope it helps
