 Invoke this thing with a URL as a parameter from the command line and
the URL opens in a new tab on your existing firefox instance.

# This script allows external apps to open new URLs in Firefox
# or open a new instance of Firefox if it isn't already started
/usr/bin/firefox -a firefox -remote "openURL($@,new-tab)" ||
exec /usr/bin/firefox "$@";
