http://unix.stackexchange.com – An earlier question got several nice answers involving stdin, none of which work in Firefox 9.0.1: echo '<h1>hello, world</h1>' | firefox /dev/fd/0 results in a new tab with the URL file:///dev/null and no text. cat | firefox /dev/fd/0 results in a new tab with the URL file:///dev/null and no text. After typing a single line of text and pressing Enter it terminates and still doesn't show anything in the new tab. firefox <( echo '<h1>hello, world</h1>' ) opens up a new tab with my profile folder, of all things. Is there any way to make this work in Firefox 9.0.1 o (HowTos)
