You can do this via a script. Make an executable script in
/usr/local/bin or ~/bin called moznewtab:
/usr/bin/firefox -remote "openURL($@, new-tab)" || exec /usr/bin/firefox
(those last "two" lines are all one if the wrapping get it).
Then, to use this, simply refer all calls that used to go to firefox to
moznewtab (like "moznewtab %s"). I'm on a WinXP box right now, so I
can't really recall, but I think you do this in Terminal itself. For
Evolution or the like, you need to redefine the http/https handlers.
Hope this works,
