Other then browse option and add exe(as Abhinav suggested), you can change the default-browser of your system to Firefox/Chrome/etc and when you try to browse it will be launched in that one.

Thus, whenever you want to debug in particular browser, make that as a default browser of your system.

Then might be some issue (virus thingy that you were saying). For sure, browse with should had worked.
Sorry guys this doesn't deal with any of the technical aspect of visual studio. since virus got hold of my system it corrupted the dlls of win32 which eventually blocked some key functions of the system and lead to disable of debugging in my environment(VS 2005). i used combofix an opensource to fix the issue. thank you anyway. for all the above suggestions
