firefox -new-window command line option not working as it should.

Posted

When using firefox -new-window "http://www.ebay.com/" "http://store.steampowered.com/" "https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox"

from cmd line, or batch file, it doesn't open 3 windows with each of the links, it opens 2, and in one of them, i'll get 2 tabs!

Is this, normal behaviour? How can i open 3 individual windows?
