(Galaxy S - Android 2.2) Clicking on a link in, say, e-mails triggers Firefox Mobile to open but not to navigate to the link's page

more options

On my Samsung Galaxy S with Android 2.2, clicking on a link (say, in a mail message or in another program) makes a pop-up appear asking which browser one wants to use, system's or Firefox Mobile Beta 2 (F4MB2). Selecting F4MB2 does fire it up, but the webpage address contained in the link seems not to be passed on to F4MB2, which stops in its home page instead of loading the link's webpage. Otherwise, browsing the net from within F4MB2 (i.e., by typing a web address directly, or selecting one from history or bookmarks) works flawlessly.
