Geany cannot display help, missing browser command firefox

I am trying to use geany, but when I try to get help, a popup appears that tells me that the browser command is misconfigured:


I tried several other commands, ie. firefox-bin (which is what I can see in the process list), flatpak run org.mozilla.firefox (which is how I succeeded to start firefox from the command line), but without success in getting help in geany. I also tried to adjust access rights for geany with flatseal, but did not succeed. Any suggestions what to enter as browser command and/or how to adjust the permissions?

Can you report this issue to the Geany Flatpak maintainers at https://github.com/flathub/org.geany.Geany/issues ?

It appears that they have already made an effort to resolve this https://github.com/flathub/org.geany.Geany/commit/2b9f2145b66d77b06412bbcf284052aae7941ad8 but evidently that fix was incomplete.

done, see: https://github.com/flathub/org.geany.Geany/issues/20 and as @wjt suggested there substituting xdg-open instead of firefox works.
