Is there a way to force Google Earth latest version (7.1.1) to open pictures and Wikipedia articles on directly Firefox or a default browser, instead of using its own GUI?

Thank you.

After you open the photo in the Google Earth browser, look in upper right for a (very small ) button that lets you open the photo in your default browser.

See screenshot for example.
