When I open page with command “firefox.exe http://www.mozilla.com/” and then “firefox.exe http://www.google.com/” pages will open in different tabs. Is it possible to open webpage (or html file) outside browser (from command line or shortcut), and then to open some other webpage(s) or files (using command-line or shortcut again) in same tab as the first one? On that system I use firefox 3.6.3 and WinXP. Thank You in advance for your support, Ivan Markovic

Drag the links in a Firefox window. If the window isn't visible then drag the link on the Windows Taskbar Firefox icon and wait for the window to open. --- Your plugins list shows outdated plugin(s) with known security and stability risks.
