Ubuntu: Open multiple firefox tabs from command line


I'm trying to open firefox with two tabs from the command line, with two separate web addresses. So far I'm having no luck.

firefox -new-tab https://www.evernote.com/Home.action -new-tab http://www.gmail.com  

Could someone point me in the right direction?


Oops. I just found the answer. You need to add a -url after each `-new-tab'.

firefox -new-tab -url https://www.evernote.com/Home.action -new-tab -url http://www.gmail.com  

Now it works. Hope this can help somebody.


Create a file containing list of URLs called url.txt:

http://www.url1.xxx  http://www.url2.xxx  http://www.url3.xxx  

Firefox uses the new-tab command, so you could pass the URLs in the file to the browser like so:

xargs -a url.txt firefox -new-tab "$line"  


Update: Now you no need to add -url simple write firefox then web url name separated by space.

firefox mail.google.com askubuntu.com stackoverflow.com
