that's ok!

tanks for all! I've found there the solution!

I modified and used the same script wrote to open web links from firefox:


export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME="/opt/firefox/"

if [ "x$url" = "x" ]; then

if $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/mozilla-xremote-client openURL\("$url, new-window"\); then
exit 0
exec $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/firefox "$url"
