As I said before, I am new, so here are the steps I took:

1. Commented out any references to the above functions already present in
my .emacs and .gnus.el files.
2. Inserted the above lines in my .emacs file as so:

'(browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-mozilla)
'(browse-url-mozilla-program "firefox")
'(browse-url-new-window-flag t)
'(browse-url-mozilla-new-window-is-tab t)
'(browse-url-mozilla-arguments '("-a" "firefox"))

3. quit gnus and restarted emacs

Now, as with the other code, a new firefox window is not opened, but the
url is opened in the active tab in the already running firefox.

Thanks for all the help, maybe there is something I missed.
