Chosen solution

That would be starting Firefox with one of these command line switches: -h or -help or -?

Print the list of all available command line options. Note that on Windows this only works with a redirection such as |more (bug 355889). This option is available only in a command console.

Question owner

firefox -h | more perfect.

Thanks for the reply. It was a small issue, and already worked around it, but I just couldn't believe there wasn't a help screen for the command prompt. Glad to see it's actually there.
