I've moved to browse-url-generic, and firefox seems to do the right
thing. This is what custom-set-variables has:

 '(browse-url-browser-function (quote browse-url-generic))
 '(browse-url-generic-program "firefox")

(I'm on linux too, I have no idea whether this works on other systems.)

It looks like firefox will revert to accept -remote again. But their
main difficulty is with "profiles", afaiu. If you use profiles, or have
specific firefox options, then you may also have to set
browse-url-generic-args.
