What I did to get this working for Opera was to launch gconf-editor and 
navigate to:


Then change the key value for "command" to launch firefox (for Opera, 
the value I used was "/usr/bin/opera -newpage %s"). You'll probably want 
to have a look at the documentation for mozilla-remote, too.
Also, make sure that the key for "enabled" is checked.
