User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-AT; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021202

Using the commandline option -remote, you can start the Mozilla Browser, Mail,
or Chat, but not the Composer (Editor). I think it would be practical to add an
option to open a URL in a new Mozilla Composer instance via the -remote option.

In old netscape you did
 netscape -remote "Edit(URL)"
so why not reuse that?
Just
 netscape -remote "Edit()"
opened an empty composer window.
I'm looking at old "good first bugs" not touched for a while. 
Andrew, do you think this is still relevant?

Mass resolving a bunch of old bugs in the x-remote component in preparation for archiving it. If this bug is still valid and useful, please move it to the "Toolkit: Startup and Profile System" component and reopen it.
