    Default to the URL around or before point.  The strings in
    variable `browse-url-firefox-arguments' are also passed to
    Firefox.

Should (optionally, enabled by default) put in their prompt,
   (interactive (browse-url-interactive-arg "URL: "))
some indication of which program they are about to call.

E.g., instead of URL, say "Call firefox on:" or "Firefox:" or
"URL for Firefox:".

Why? Because otherwise it looks just like the w3m-view-this-url etc.
default prompts, even if one knows which function he is calling.

Feh.  You can easily customize the prompt if you want, without adding a
paint shelf to Emacs for your bike shed:

(defadvice browse-url-firefox (before interactive-url-prompt activate)
  (interactive (browse-url-interactive-arg "Firefox URL: ")))
