get browse-url to use mozilla-firebird

How do I convince emacs 2.3.1's browse-url-at-point to use 
the mozilla-firebird browser instead of the mozilla one?

This works great for Mozilla.

   ; Use Mozilla as default browser on Red Hat 7.3 or 8.0 Linux w/
   ; Gnome support.  (For Emacs 21.2.1 and 21.3.1)
     (setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-gnome-moz)

After 'Google'ing I found some help on getting mozilla-firebird to act
the same way.  This is what I have now.

   ; Use Mozilla Firebird (was Phoenix) on Fedora Core 1
     (defun browse-url-mozilla-firebird (url arg)
         (format "/usr/bin/mozilla-firebird -remote 'openURL(%s, new-tab)'" 
     (setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-mozilla-firebird)

The browse-url-gnome-moz functions calls the GNOME program
gnome-moz-remote rather than directly calling /usr/bin/mozilla.  This
which seems undesirable to me (since I occasionally use KDE too).
