Tools > Preferences:

On the "Others" tab: Applications: Browser:
Change it to:

firefox $url

Remember to hit "Save" in the bottom-right corner

In my Firefox I dont have preferences under Tools. Only:
web search, downloads, add-ons, error console, page info, clear private data.

Instead I have preferences under Edit.

Can you think of another application which has a "tools" menu, where you may want to express a browser preference?

You also have one of the most advanced types of bio-neural intuitive-heuristic device sitting just behind your eyes - considering the decades spent programming it at great expense, it tends to be under used

How would you normally set preferences for aMSN?
Hint: http://www.amsn-project.net/files/prefs.png
It may be edit > preferences - you're the one with your version sitting in front of you. Really, you should take some time to explore the menus.
