User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051107 Firefox/1.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051107 Firefox/1.5 When using the command line to start FireFox you can't use the -new parameter and an Url e.g. firefox.exe -new http://www.getfirefox.com/ if you use -new first it will open a new process but not the url and if you enter first the url it will use the latest window. You can change the option in the advanced settings, but I want to switch between them with the command line Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create a shortcut 2. Add -new "http://www.getfirefox.com" 3. Run the shortcut Actual Results: It opens a new window without the new url Expected Results: That it opens the new window with the given url
It's already possible to do this on Linux (with a different syntax), but I don't think it is on Windows.
Summary: Command line: New window and url → Command-line option to open URL in a new window (on Windows)
This already exists, it's -new-window.
