bug#9328: 24.0.50; `browse-url-fireforx' creates 2 identical tabs

When using `browse-url-firefox', it creates 2 identical tabs.

To reproduce:

1. emacs -q
2. Evaluate in *sctatch* buffer:

(setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-firefox
      browse-url-new-window-flag  t
      browse-url-firefox-new-window-is-tab t)

3. Make sure the Firefox executable is in the `exec-path':

(add-to-list 'exec-path "C:/Program Files/Mozilla/Firefox")

4. Call `browse-url-firefox' by evaluating:

(browse-url-firefox "http://www.gnu.org";)

Emacs will then show 2 identical Firefox tabs instead of only one.

At first I thought this problem was due to mouse clicks and/or my
.emacs setting:

(setq mouse-1-click-follows-link 'double)

but as you can see with the recipe (above) it still occurs without
using the mouse.

I noticed that this behavior also occurs with Emacs 23.3.1:

GNU Emacs 23.3.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2011-03-10 on 3249CTO

I recall that this behavior didn't occur sometime in the past when
I first set `browse-url-browser-functions' many moons ago.

This could also be a problem with changes in Firefox but I don't have
a version earlier than Firefox 3.6.x (nor Emacs 23.3.1) to test or
