You want URI-passing in ELinks.

Via the ELinks menu, go to:

Setup -> Option Manager -> Document -> URI Passing

call it something like the name of the browser you wish to use, such
as "Firefox".  When you've added it, click edit, and enter something

firefox %c 2>/dev/null

Then save the options from the Options manager.
