Firefox: Opening a chrome URL with cmd line
I've been trying to open the chrome URL of an extension (NewsFox) in a new tab in Firefox through a command line. I already do this for regular URLs and it works fine. I've tried the following:
firefox -new-tab chrome://newsfox/content/newsfox.xul <--This does nothing
firefox -chrome chrome://newsfox/content/newsfox.xul <--This opens the extension in its own window--but not a regular Firefox window--just the extension's form. This window seems to be mostly disabled. It cannot check for new RSS items or preview the RSS feed when I click on an item. I'm assuming it needs to be within a Firefox window in some form before it can work.
firefox -new-window chrome://newsfox/content/newsfox.xul <--This just opens a new window with my default homepage.
Any suggestions? Does anyone know how to open a bookmark or bookmark folder with the command line? Or know of an extension that lets me open bookmarks on a schedule?
Thanks in advance.
