probs with firefox and gnus

User-agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.3

I am new to the world of gnus (about 1.5 weeks) and I am having a bit of
a problem getting gnus and firefox to work well together.  I found code
on the emacs wiki to open an url in a new tab, but it opens in a new
window instead.  Here is the pertinent info:

Debian sid
Emacs 21.3
Firefox 0.9.1

The function code looks like this on the site:

;; I have added line numbers for reference in this post only
;; I also changed formatting to keep the lines under 
;; 72 characters

1. (defun browse-url-firefox-new-tab (url &optional new-window)
2.  "Open URL in a new tab in Firefox."
3.   (interactive (browse-url-interactive-arg "URL: "))
4.   (let ((cmd (shell-command-to-string
5.    (concat "~/src/firefox/mozilla-xremote-client -a any 'openURL("
6.        url ",new-tab)'"))))
7.    (unless (string= "" cmd)
8.     (message "Starting Firefox...")
9.     (start-process (concat "firefox " url) 
        nil "~/src/firefox/firefox" url)
10.    (message "Starting Firefox...done"))))

I changed line 5 to read:

5.  (concat "/usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-xremote-client -a
            any 'openURL("


5.  (concat "/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/mozilla-firefox-xremote-client
            -a any 'openURL(" 


5.  (concat "/usr/bin/firefox -a firefox -remote

but none of them seem to work.  I also changed line 9 to reflect the
local path to firefox.  The line in my .emacs that pertains to this

 '(browse-url-browser-function (quote browse-url-firefox-new-tab))

I have tried google, but I can't seem to find anything.  What am I
missing here?
