I arrived at an almost identical solution to the one given by Oleg. It works for me with FF 28, 35 & 36 - but presumably there are earlier versions where it does not, otherise why have the -remote option at all?

The gist of the Mozilla bug report is that the option has existed for a very long time, but there are now other command-line options that do exactly the same thing. So the only question seems to be whether Python should still support those older versions of FF that actually require it (if any exist).

On the xdg-open issue: the $BROWSER env var has priority over the default list of browsers to try, so that might explain why xdg-open is not being used on some systems (that is how I originally became aware of this problem).
