That solved my problem, thanks.  It didn't do what I was trying to do, 
which I now see would be to have  mythbookmarkmanager use firefox, but 
it is good enough for what I want.  More importantly, it solves my sound 
problem in that the sound is going out of the spdif port when using 
flashplayer withing firefox.  Plus, I don't have to leave myth to run 

What I did is modify /usr/share/mythtv/info_menu.xml and add this code:

     <action>EXEC /usr/bin/firefox</action>

I will probably customize it more to get the web sites I want to come up 
with a push of the button, but you have definitely opened up a new set 
of things that can be done with Myth.  Very cool.

Thanks again,

PS.  I saved the original info_menu.xml file first.
