I don't know what default path is used by Klipper but it surely only looks 
into the "standard" bin folders.

Can you further explain? The purpose of the 'ps... thingy' is to check whether 
firefox is already running and use that instance.

I guess so. I you copy several times the same string to Klipper, it 
automatically filters the duplicates. So if you want to manually trigger the 
pop-up, there is a short-cut ('Tux-Ctrl-R' on my machine, in fact KDE labeled 
the key "windows" but it is a Tux ;-)
