Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

,----[ C-h f browse-url-default-browser RET ]
| browse-url-default-browser is a compiled Lisp function in
| `browse-url.el'.
| (browse-url-default-browser url &rest args)
| Find a suitable browser and ask it to load url.
| Default to the url around or before point.
| When called interactively, if variable `browse-url-new-window-flag' is
| non-nil, load the document in a new window, if possible, otherwise use
| a random existing one.  A non-nil interactive prefix argument reverses
| the effect of `browse-url-new-window-flag'.
| When called non-interactively, optional second argument NEW-WINDOW is
| used instead of `browse-url-new-window-flag'.
| The order attempted is gnome-moz-remote, Mozilla, Firefox,
| Galeon, Konqueror, Netscape, Mosaic, Lynx in an xterm, and then W3.
| [back]

The only thing that is related to 'default' is it uses url around point
by default. But the name is misleading, for example, emacs-w3m uses it
to open a default external browser, but it will open bizarre browsers on
OS X or Windows.

I wonder if the function name can be improved, for example,
