my code: ( update-alternatives --config mozilla ==> firefox )
==================================================================
(defun my-browser (url &optional new-window)
  "Open URL in a new tab in Mozilla."
  (interactive (browse-url-interactive-arg "URL: "))
  (when
      (string-match ".*No running window found\.$" 
                    (shell-command-to-string 
                     (concat "mozilla -remote 'openurl(" url ",new-tab)'")))
    (message "Starting Mozilla...")
    (start-process (concat "mozilla " url) nil
                   "/bin/sh" "-c" (concat "mozilla " url "|| true"))
    (message "Starting Mozilla...done")))
