I'm using the latest Emacs 22 from CVS, and `browse-url-at-point' works
out of the box.  It uses `browse-url-default-macosx-browser'.  If you
need to specify Firefox, you just need add an argument to the "open"
command.

(defun browse-url-firefox-macosx (url &optional new-window)
  (interactive (browse-url-interactive-arg "URL: "))
  (start-process (concat "open -a Firefox" url) nil "open" url))

(setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-firefox-macosx)
