I'm getting a similar error in pine using FC3.  When I try to view an
html attachment, I get the following xmessage:
  ERROR: The browser /usr/local/firefox/firefox does not exist. 
Please reconfigure.

I've checked my .pinerc file and there is no reference to
/usr/local/firefox/firefox.  That was where I had firefox installed
when running FC1.
