does it do -q?  not sure because emacs is too unusable to even find
that out.  so firefox fails to be accessible in that dialog box.

Samuel, I think, firefox does exactly what it can find in MIME associations (e.g. ~/.config/mimeapps.list) and in the .desktop file of the selected application.

There is an emacsclient.desktop file in Emacs git master that tries to connect to the existing Emacs session. It is a relatively new addition, so packages for Linux distributions may miss it.

You can either use standard Emacs initialization to get all your customization available through default emacs.desktop or create a custom .desktop file that contain all CLI options specific to your setup.
