That is rather odd.  What shortcuts are you using?  Is this a shortcut
on your desktop?  If so, simply edit it to execute *firefox* using the
lxshortcut program.
Though, right clicking should produce the menu which asks what you want
to open it with.  The left click should open it.
You may need to provide us more specific details about what you are doing.
