I haven't been monitoring the gnu.emacs.vm.bug newsgroup because it is essentially defunct. Please use (or, preferably, the viewmail-info mailing list).

The behaviour you are finding is normal for VM. If it can't display the content using the internal viewer for whatever reason, it tries the external viewer. If you do not want the external viewer to be fired, then you have to remove that setting from your .vm file.

The error is most likely happening inside emacs-w3m. It is probably to do with displaying images, as this bug report indicates:

It is not a problem that VM can do anything about.

I'm used to having HTML shown inline using the default mechanism using
w3 or whatever it is called.  And that still works SOME OF THE TIME.
But occasionally, when I move to an HTML mail, instead Firefox is
started showing my mail.

I get error messages in *Messages* which I believe, without knowing
for sure, to be related:

     Inlining text/html by emacs-w3m...
     Decoding quoted-printable... done
     Inline text/html by emacs-w3m display failed: Args out of range: 1, 1
     Decoding quoted-printable... done
     Wrote /tmp/vm24421537327.html
     Decoding MIME message... done

That "args out of range" looks suspicious, but I'm not sure what to
make out of it.

This is not specific to particular messages.  The very same message
can be shown correctly one time, and the next time I move to it, it
triggers Firefox.

I might have done something wrong in my configurations, but I don't
know what it might be.  I have not been able to reproduce it with
emtpy configurations, but since it only happens occasionally, I'm not
sure if that means anything.

Any ideas on how I might debug this?
