The reason for this is that gnome-moz-remote uses the Netscape/Mozilla
"remote control protocol" to ask them to open a new window if an instance
is allready running. This avoids reloading the binary (which isn't
possible in any event because of locking issues of control files).

There are two possbilities:

1) No instance is running. In this case it prefers to start mozilla,
   if it's available.

2) If either a netscape or mozilla instance is allready running, it
   will communicate with that instance to open a new window (optionally
   with a given URL). Thus if netscape is allready running, you will
   get another netscape window, even if mozilla is installed.
