Can I open multiple tabs in Firefox when WINDOWS starts up? Command line limits to about 204 characters...
I know how to configure Firefox so that it opens multiple tabs every time you open Firefox. I want it to open multiple tabs when I start Windows. Or in other words, I don't want to connect to multiple web pages every time I open a browser, just the first time I log on for the day.
I tried appending the web sites in the command line of a Firefox shortcut in my Windows Startup folder. The problem is that in this approach, you're limited to as many URL's as you can type in about 204 characters ('C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe' uses up 52 of the 256 characters available in a shortcut).
Is there a way to open more tabbed web sites than that?
What would be cool is if there was something like a FFstartup.ini file or something, where you could provide a list of websites as long as you want, and it would open them all. So, the command line would look like:
'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe' 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\FFstartup.ini'
...and the FFstartup.ini file would look like:
If there's no current way to do this, how would I make this suggestion to be developed?

Use a .bat or .cmd file to start Firefox if you need more space than the target line in a shortcut allows.
Separate the URLs with spaces.
