I want to open around 10 instances of firefox using the command line like

firefox.exe www.google.com www.msn.com www.yahoo.com

But by default, firefox opens these web pages in tabs, i want firefox to open them in seperate windows.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Passing the -new-windowURL parameter to Firefox will open the URL in a new window. I haven't tested it, but it would make sense that either:

  1. You could pass multiple URLs after the -new-window option, or,
  2. You could use multiple -new-window operators in sequence (e.g. firefox.exe -new-window google.ca -new-window example.org).

You can find the various command line options for opening a URL in a new tab or window @ Mozilla's developer command line options page.
