In Edit > Preferences, Applications, Content type "mailto", I selected "Use mutt". When I click mailto: links, mutt opens in a gnome-terminal. I want the terminal to be chosen via the alternatives system, using x-terminal-emulator. How does Firefox choose which terminal to use here?

You can set that via the Preferred Applications (GNOME > System > Personal > Preferred Applications > System)
