       firefox - a free and open source web browser from Mozilla


SYNOPSIS
       firefox [OPTIONS] [url]


DESCRIPTION
       See http://support.mozilla.com/ for help using the browser.  This
       manpage only describes how to run it.


OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              Prints the command line options.

       -g, --debug
              Starts firefox in a debugger.

       -d, --debugger
              Specify the debugger in which to start firefox. The default is
              gdb. Used in conjunction with -g.

              Specify arguments to pass to the debugger. Used in conjunction
              with -g.

       -no-remote
              Don't connect to any other running instances of firefox. Use
              this if you want to run firefox in an entirely new process. By
              default, firefox will delegate a command to an already running
              instance.

       -ProfileManager
              Start the profilemanager. Use this to choose the profile you
              would like to run firefox with. You will need to also use
              -no-remote if there is already a running firefox instance.

       -P profile
              Start firefox with the profile named profile. Will start the
              profile manager if a valid profile name is not specified. You
              will need to also use -no-remote if there is already a running
              firefox instance.

       -safe-mode
              Start firefox in safe-mode. This disables all third-party
              extensions, and may be necessary if you are having problems with
              an extension you installed.
