No idea what you're asking for. Please clarify your question. If you don't want someone to see your screen, I suggest you turn your monitor towards the wall.

I do not know if there is a any command that will open a window which no one will be able to see. If no one can see then how can you?
If you can use different workspaces, will it solve your problem?

If you shrink the window really small and then close it, does it open to the small size?

i dont need to see this page or program
this program going to open the web for 4 minutes and then it close himself

no, its open again at normal size
maybe its possible to open with personal preference
and to save at this "personal preference" the size of firefox.

i try to use "-silence"

its work but without the url.
example:

"firefox -silence" - can`t see firefox.
"firefox -silence "http://www.linuxquestions.org"" - open firefox at original size.
