You can register custom scheme handler and since then, firefox can open spice://hostname:port by remote-viewer.
Steps, how to register:
1. copy remote-viewer.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications or /usr/share/applications
2. run update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications or /usr/share/applications
Thanks, it works! Now the obvious question is should virt-viewer or spice-xpi do this by default?
