start firefox....... go to edit> preferences >

In general tab there is an option

Firefox should check at the time of start up that it is a defalut browser or not

press the check now button and make firefox the default browser....

Just what button are you talking about, and on which desktop manager (KDE, Gnome, windowmaker, et cetera)? It may be that you just need to change the target of that button.
