Yes, this is a known issue on Mac OS X. I believe that the problem lies
not with Firefox per se, but with the way in which Mac OS handles
internet protocols. I think someone will have to code something in cocoa
or applescript that passes the protocol to emacsclient. See this post by
Sebastian for more details:


That said, I don't really know too much about the internals of MacOS X,
so I may be wrong about this.

BTW, the only browser I was able to get working with org-protocol on the
Mac was conkeror, a browser that uses emacs-style keybindings. 


For emacs users, conkeror is particularly convenient browser, not least
because you can call commands with M-x or get information about commands
using "apropos" (C-h a). If anyone is interested in trying it out, I put
up instructions on how to set up conkeror on the org-protocol page. You
can even bind org-remember to C-c r in conkeror!
