preferred vs. running browser

IMHO there are two problems with the default browser in browse-url.

  . In browse-url-default-browser, Mozilla is preferred to Firefox.
    It seems that today Firefox is already more popular than Mozilla,
    so I suggest to revert the default order.

  . browse-url doesn't check whether one of the listed browsers is
    already running (assuming that browse-url-browser-function is not
    customized, this is, the value is 'browse-url-default-browser).  In
    my case I have called firefox, but browse-url called mozilla.

    Wouldn't it be better to add some code so that a browser which is
    currently running is always tried first?
