I have been similarly unsuccessful with the Mac.  As far as I can tell,
this is actually a bug in the Mac version of Firefox.  I have posted to
the mozilla zine forums about this
(http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=889745), and have
also filed a bug on the Mozilla bugzilla
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=471724).

Alas, there does not seem to be any interest in fixing this bug evinced
by the organization, and I am not at all a C++ programmer, so can't do
anything myself.  I can only encourage you, and all Org users, to vote
for this bug.

And meanwhile you can at least save yourself some hours of fruitless
wrestling with Firefox preferences!

Best,
R

I am trying to set up firefox (3.0.8) to handle org-protocol on a mac
with little success. I had no problems on Linux, by the way. Perhaps
someone out there that is more mac-savvy than me can help?

Basically I followed the standard instructions (setting up
network.prtocol-handler.* through about:config etc.) but I kept
getting the infamous "protocol (org-protocol) isn't associated with
any program" no matter what target I tried
(/usr/local/bin/emacsclient, etc.).  Then I found a hint that maybe it
had to be changed globally for the whole mac (using
http://www.monkeyfood.com/software/moreInternet/) but this application
does not allow me to point to /usr/local/bin/emacsclient. I did allow
me to point the protocol to, e.g., Emacs.app, and that worked popping
up emacs, but it is not what one wants. Then I came upon the
"Platypus" wrapper and made an emacsclient.app but moreInternet did
not like that either.

Can someone who has been successful with a mac give me a hint? 

Thanks in advance. --MH
