Emacs Browser


when I hit "view buffer contents" in html mode in Emacs, it displays the file with lynx, but I want it to display the file with Firefox. How do I correct this?

Hi.

Have a look in /etc/mailcap and either edit that to suit, or create a ~/.mailcap file with the appropriate incantation:

text/html; /usr/bin/firefox %s
