Long text of problem snipped...

I am not sure that I understand this line.  I went under the emacs
customize area and changed the browse-url-mozilla-program to firefox.
Now this line is in my .emacs:

 '(browse-url-mozilla-program "firefox")

With the line above, and the code below in my .gnus, it no longer starts
a new process instead of using the existing one, but it takes the page
that is loaded in the active tab and replaces it with the url that is
clicked on (well, fed by RET) in the article buffer.

Is there something I missed or misunderstood?
