I have similar, my .mailcap is:-

    text/html; /home/chris/bin/muttfox %s
    text/html; lynx -dump %s; copiousoutput; nametemplate=%s.html

So I use lynx to view HTML E-Mail by default and to view in my browser
I hit v[iew-attachment] and then 'm' for view-mailcap to view using my
muttfox script.  The muttfox script just calls a local or remote
firefox it's only necessary because I run mutt via ssh remotely
someetimes.  For normal use you can just call firefox directly.
