In SVN trunk (aka 2.5a0) this code is

    for browser in ("mozilla-firefox", "firefox",
                    "mozilla-firebird", "firebird",
                    "mozilla", "netscape"):
        if _iscommand(browser):
            register(browser, None, Mozilla(browser))

where Mozilla == Netscape, so your proposed fix appears to be correct.
(Which reminds me, I have a patch to webbrowser.py to test...)
