Links from other applications not opening in Firefox.

Firefox 10.0.2 is set as my default browser (running Mac OSX 10.6), and I click a url link in another external application (e.g., chat client, pdf reader) Firefox fails to open it.

The problem has been happening for a little while but I only recently discovered that it was specific to Firefox: If I change my default browser to Chrome, then the links open successfully in Chrome.
