Hello BC.

I don't like using the mouse, I like using the RUN command (WinKey + R). I know that to open up a website in the default browser, simpily type in the URL of the website. and I know how to specifically designate IE to open up a new window with a URL in it, you type in "iexplore (URL)".

I also know plenty of commands like
--> windows reg --> winreg (don't use this unless you know what winreg is)
--> notepad --> Notepad

Plenty of other goodies are out there, but I will leave that to who wants to explain them all.

what I need is a firefox run command. How to open up a new firefox window in the RUN box.

I don't wanna know that firefox has multiple browsers inside one window, I wanna know how to open up a new window of firefox from the run command.

Thanks BC users

Most likely FireFox is not in your 'path', so will will need to type in the path + filename.

For me to open FireFox from the run box, I would need to type in:
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

You *could* save a short .bat file in your path that would allow you to open FireFox with a simpler command (such as "FF"). If you'd like to do that, let me know.

Good Run commands? How about cmd /k sc delete $sys$aries for Sony's rootkit?
*still mad at & disgusted with Sony*

For Firefox, just type in firefox.exe. Also firefox.exe -p will launch the Profile Manager.

Lets see .... there's always good ol' msconfig. I used that quite a bit to cut down on the number of programs launched at startup. If you're on XP, you can also use msconfig to easily enter Safe Mode:
Run > MSCONFIG > BOOT.INI Tab > Check /SAFEBOOT (DON'T MESS WITH ANYTHING ELSE) > Reboot your computer & you'll boot into Safe Mode. When you're done, just go to Run > MSCONFIG > BOOT.INI Tab > Uncheck /SAFEBOOT > Reboot. It's easier than trying to tap the right key at just the right time.

Regedit is alway handy as long as you know what you're doing. And cmd will quickly launch the command prompt.

Ummm .... can't think of any more right now...

I tend to wonder why you need this command. Using the Quick Launch shortcut for Firefox on my system results in a new window every time (I routinely run 4 open windows with 10 to 15 tabs in each).

I even found a nifty little FF extension called IE Tab (Not IEView) that allows me to view IE pages in FF (it's got some bugs tho')
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
