Can I launch a specific web page in FireFox using Alexa e.g. "Alexa, tell FireFox to open https://news.bbc.co.uk"

I've bought an Echo Show for my elderly mother to keep in touch via video calls. We live far from each other.

She was enjoying watching Polish TV streamed via the Echo Show but has managed to remove the favourite I setup to get to the correct web page.

I'm currently looking to see if anything can be done using Alexa skills (totally new to this technology - although my background is software engineering) to help her.

I was just wondering if its possible to launch FireFox on the Echo Show with a specific web page as indicated by the example in the question summary?

Hi John
