In Gutsy Gibbon, URL in scribus does not launch firefox

Asked by Bill Beardsmore

I have recently upgraded to gutsy gibbon from feisty fawn and all appears to be woking fine including Mozilla Firefox.
More recently I have installed both scribus 1.3.4 and scribus In both issues of scribus when I click on a URL, in
the scribus manual, firefox does not respond. In scribus the manual page goes blank and that's all. In scribus 1.3.4,
I get the message " Scribus was not able to start the external web browser application/home/bill/desktop. Please check the setting in preferences".
As scribus is the stable version I would appreciate a solution for it. I would also like a solution for the more recent scribus 1.3.4, so if someone can recommend an appropriate preference setting or other solution I would be very grateful.
