| I'm new to MacOSX and just tried to setup (Carbon) Emacs (22.0.97) to open a
| new Firefox (2.0) tab for e.g. browse-url-at-point:
|
|   (setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-firefox)
|   (setq browse-url-firefox-program 
"/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox")
|
| This doesn't work. I read that Firefox on Windows doesn't support the

| assumption right and has anyone an idea how to workaround this
| inconvenience?

I run emacs 23, so I am not sure this is in emacs 22, but I think it's
likely, in which case something like this works for me:

(defun browse-url-firefox-on-mac (url &rest ignored)
  (do-applescript
   (format "tell application \"Firefox\" to Get URL \"%s\"" url)))
(setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-firefox-on-mac)

Not sure what to do with any extra arguments.
