Are you sure that "http://groups.google.com/"; is indeed the argument
that MozillaFirebird.exe gets in your case?  If so, my assumptions was
wrong, and some other factor is at work here.

What I meant to say is that there's a possibility that the presence of
"//" in the file name causes some cygwin magic kick in that is
supposed to transform cygwin-style file names to Windows-style, even
though the argument to the browser is a URL, not a file name.
