By default, it opens in a new window (but in the same instance). I have 
it set to open in a new tab, though. I just changed the line




in the firefox startup shell script. Looks like there's meant to be a 
more elegant way to do it by setting an environment variable. That way 
it wouldn't be global to the system, and wouldn't get wiped on updates, 
but I haven't been able to get that to work yet.
