Two things:

in .muttrc:

auto_view text/html

in .mailcap or /etc/mailcap:

text/html; /usr/bin/sensible-browser %s; description=HTML Text; nametemplate=%s.html
text/html; /usr/bin/firefox-esr %s; description=HTML Text; test=test -n "$DISPLAY";  nametemplate=%s.html
text/html; /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --incognito %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
application/xhtml_xml; /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --incognito %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
text/html; /usr/bin/lynx -force_html %s; needsterminal; description=HTML Text; nametemplate=%s.html
text/html; /usr/bin/lynx -dump -force_html %s; copiousoutput; description=HTML Text; nametemplate=%s.html

or similar.
