I would like to be able to create different shortcuts on my desktop with command
line parameters to override the value in the home page->location setting.

This would allow me to fire up the browser and open a bookmark page or bookmark
group with much more flexibility and control and to open pages or groups of
pages automatically by calling the shortcut from other applications and the task

For instance the "news websites" bookmark group could fire up when the PC boots
first thing in the morning, the "business links" could fire shortly after 9am to
catch up on work related sites, and the links for the various channels would
fire up at about 6pm to see what's on TV tonight etc. The current functionality
simply checks for updates, rather than always opening the pages.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

No bug, new feature

This sounds like extension fodder. The Session Manager extension which can save and restore sessions might be something that fits the requirements.
