Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2006-02-03 05:47:02 EST
This isn't a bittorrent-specific issue, because bittorrent uses the "webbrowser"
module from the python package in Fedora Core to bring up the browser. That
module has a hard-coded search order, and might not actually find firefox at all
since it seems to look for "mozilla-firefox" rather than just "firefox".

Possible solutions:

* Add a symlink: /usr/bin/mozilla-firefox -> firefox

* Raise a bug on python to get it to look for "firefox" instead of
"mozilla-firefox" in webbrowser.py

* Set the BROWSER environment variable to "firefox"

See http://python.active-venture.com/lib/module-webbrowser.html for more on the
webbrowser module.
