iMac lion Mail - Search in Google not using default browser

Searching around the web no one has a solution for this question. When in Mail on the iMac Lion using "Search with Goggle", Safari always launches.

I want Firefox to launch. Firefox is set to my default browser in Safari.

How do you make this work?

The Search with Google option that you're seeing launches Safari because it's actually a Service which is specific to Safari (which is why it doesn't honor your default browser setting). What you'll want to do is disable this built-in Service and create a new one which will then use whatever browser you have set as your default. It's simple enough to do all of that using these instructions.
