What command line option(s) should I use to open several URLs as tabs in a NEW private browsing window. So, if a private browsing window is already open, a new window should be opened.

I've checked https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options /quote -private-window URL Open URL in a new private browsing window. If a private browsing window is already open, a new tab is opened in the existing window. /unquote Why can one open new private windows pressing ctrl-shft-P, and apparently not in a command line ?

If you use -private-window without a URL, you get the usual private window home page in the tab. That's the section just before the one you quoted.

That said, I think you have to do each tab separately. Let's assume your firefox.exe is at this location:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

You could use this batch file (save as "test.bat" in plain text format) to launch a new private window, then add 3 tabs:

@echo off
echo Opening a new private window
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window
REM Firefox needs a moment before we send it tabs to open
timeout 1
echo Opening three private tabs
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window "https://support.mozilla.org/"
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window "https://addons.mozilla.org/"
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -private-window "https://developer.mozilla.org"
echo Done!
