It only works, if Firefox is already running.
To workaround window issues scripts using the command wmctrl and the
command xdotool are usually helpful. However, in this case a mailer
providing an option to chose the external browser or script would be
helpful. I don't know if Evolution has got such an option or if it
run the default browser.

Evolution relies on XDG; you can set the browser to any command you'd

This is a big problem, since all apps that rely on xdg would use the
chosen default browser by this command. For a mailer like e.g. Claws,
that allows to chose the browser or script by the Claws presets, it
would be very easy to run a script that does use any browser, even the
xdg browser and to give the Claws window focus by wmctrl. You don't want
to run the same script giving focus to Claws, when opening a link by
Evolution. IOW this might be a missing feature for Evolution. Actually I
didn't check if such a feature does already exist for Evolution, too. I
just haven't seen one.
