Linux client opens URL's using 'firefox', should use system browser

When clicking a URL in the Linux client, Foldit just runs the 'firefox' command, regardless of whether that exists or not. For example, I have 'firefox-developer-edition' as my browser and do not have Firefox mainline installed, so I get:
sh: firefox: command not found
when I click any URL in the Linux client.
Fix: use 'xdg-open' please. It opens the user-specified default browser on any reasonably popular modern Linux distribution. Should 'xdg-open' not exist, 'firefox' is fine as a fallback. :)
