Will no work if you are running Firefox 0.9 . The command to do it is
firefox -a firefox -remote "openURL($1,new-tab)"
(There is no space between $1 and new-tab ). The remote command also
provides a ping option to check for a running window
firefox -a firefox -remote "ping()"
Gives an "Error: No running window found" if no running instance is
found else remains quiet.
