You are welcome, but I'm confused. Should it read that you actually
replaced the Firefox desktop file and now Claws passes the URL through
to Firefox? Which also doesn't make much sense, I'm already confused

/usr/bin by default is included to PATH for every distro, so if Claws
does run

  firefox '%s'

or similar, it should do the job.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ env | grep /usr/bin:

However, it seemingly isn't a Claws issue, but seemingly (was) caused by
this third party install.
