Which one?  `browse-url-file-url' takes a file name, not a URL.
(BTW, I think (setq file (encode-coding-system file (or
default-file-name-coding-system file-name-coding-system))) is needed
before %-escaping.)
`browse-url-{netscape,mozilla,firefox}' take a URL, but they only
%-excape a few characters such as `)' so as to avoid confusion with
their remote control syntax.
