I just installed git using cygwin. I then tried using git help status but I received the error fatal: '/usr/share/doc/git-doc': not a documentation directory. And indeed, there is no folder git-doc in /usr/share.
So I manually added the html folder in the right folder, and it now seems to work. However, the default web browser that is used to display the page is a console one (w3m.exe). I tried setting the value git config --global web.browser firefox, and even git config --global browser.firefox.path "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", but it doesn't work. What should I do to run the html with firefox (except using the file manager) ?
