What does "sensible-browser example.com" do for you?
(it opens the webpage using my default browser here)

If it does not, please edit the sensible-browser script and add " -e" at
the end of the shebang (first line), then start it from a terminal and
provide the output here.

For me it looks as follows:
$ sensible-browser example.com
+ URL=example.com
+ test -n
+ test -n :0.0
+ test -n
+ test -x /usr/bin/x-www-browser
+ exec /usr/bin/x-www-browser example.com

re "wxLaunchDefaultBrowser": AFAICS this has been patched to use the
Debian/Ubuntu default browser instead (rather than the one configured in
Gnome, which might be the same though, of course).

btw: debianutils is a essential package in Ubuntu, too (re my last

AFAICS it should use /usr/bin/firefox ($BROWSER) for you, lubosz.
I've tried "BROWSER=konqueror sensible-browser example.com" and it used Konqueror, as expected.
