 Enter Firefox as the custom browser in Web Settings for the MythBrowser
 plugin. Go to the Web menu item and open any website, nothing happens.

 It seems that MythBrowser runs the browser with the -h option. This
 configures the height for MythBrowser, but prompts for the help in Firefox
 which prevents Firefox from starting.

 If MythBrowser used the -height and -width options instead of -h and -w,
 the same as Firefox, then this would configure the width and height for
 Firefox when running the browser command.

 Alternatively you could allow the user to enter in width and height using
 the % notation in the settings. For example, the browser settings could be
 "mythbrowser -h %h -w %w" or "firefox -height %h -width %w". This way it
 would be compatible with any browser the user chooses.

 Mythbuntu 8.04.1
 MythTV 0.21
 Firefox 3.0.1
