	In the popup, get the Internet tab on top. (It probably will be 
already.) Make the first box say Firefox.

	Just for lagniappe, in case you want something a lot faster and 
very safe, make that box say Custom. Then in the Command box, make it say 
"dillo %s" -- note the space before the %. Then become root and command 
"yum install dillo"

	If like me you often get URLs in emails that you just want a 
quick look at, this will speed things way up; and if you get a site Dillo 
won't handle, but that you still want to see, then c&p into a new tab on 
Ffx. Ditto if you want to keep a bookmark, or recopy a long URL all in 
one line.
