sensible-browser is from debianutils and should provide the right
browser for you. If it does not, that's probably a bug.

>From looking at /usr/bin/sensible-browser, it appears to try $BROWSER, x
-www-browser. If $GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID is set, also /usr/bin/gnome-
www-browser gets tried.

I think sensible-browser appears to be more sensible to use than x-www-
browser, while using firefox specifically does not make sense as far as
I can see.

The patch says btw:
"""Disclaimer: This patch is Debian-specific. Don't use it for non Debian packages.
The program "sensible-browser" is part of the essential package debianutils."""

Do you think the problem is, sensible-browser not being installed? Or
defaulting to epiphany, although it's not installed?
