Python :: How to open a page in the Non Default browser

I was trying to create a simple script to open a locally hosted web site for testing the css in 2 or more browsers. The default browser is IE7 and it opens the page fine but when I try to open a non default browser such as Firefox or Arora it just fails.

>>> print
