command line options for firefox for shell scripting.

Hi i needed to use firefox in a shell script and wanted to know what (if any) command line options firefox can take on start up. I noticed there was no man for firefox (or if there is it isn't installed on my computer or in my man path. I was able to write the script i needed without any command line options but want to know for future references. Also they could extend the functionality of my current script for instance if there is a option to start fireforx in fullscreen mode. tthanks for any help in advance.
