[PLUG] Mutt, Mozilla and missing files

I've been using w3m as a text based browser inside of Mutt
(Thanks for that tip, Gabe!)  However, I like to browse further
from the email's url and have become habituated to using a tabbed browser
like firefox/Mozilla.  Also, w3m ties up my mutt session so I have to 
quit browsing to continue reading email.  I'd like a browser that
would "spawn" off a new tab or window when I open an html attachment.

Unfortunately for me, I cannot get either Mozilla or Firefox to work with Mutt.  

For w3m, I have a .mailcap entry that looks like this:

text/html; /usr/bin/w3m -o display_image=false \
                        -o frame=true \
                        -o confirm_qq=false \
                        -o close_tab_back=true -T text\/html %s

All I can muster for Mozilla is this and it never works:
text/html; /usr/bin/mozilla "file:///%s"

It always complains that it cannot find the file /tmp/mutt<random string>

Anybody else use a separate browser with Mutt?  If so, how do you do it?
