A link to a “similar question” (xdg-open default applications behavior – not obviously related, but some experimentation showed that the behaviour is indeed dictated by xdg-open) led me deeper down the rabbit hole: It appears that Firefox inherits its default file opening behaviour in some cases from xdg-open, which in my case does open PDF files with ...

As a temporary an limited solution to use Firefox without proper installation: --following this answer -- Downloaded the Firefox package Unpacked it. Now Firefox can be launched from there. Creating a Firefox.desktop file in /usr/share/applications would add that to the menu entries.

The ppa does not "know" about Semplice. If it's similar enough to Debian sid, try adding the ppa manually in /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu unstable main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu unstable main

Converted Comment from @ewhac into an answer: Firefox is not the only application to preserve its own window settings on exit (for example, the Pan newsreader does this).

Vimperator founder here: Yes, it is possible. The complete syntax is here: https://github.com/vimperator/vimperator-labs/blob/master/common/locale/en-US/starting.xml or given in :help startup So try that: firefox -vimperator "+c 'javascript alert(\"from commandline\");'" would show an prompt after starting firefox.

There doesn't seem to much motivation to implement some EWMH support in Firefox nor in Chrome, even though this would get the restoration to workspace issue resolved with a large number of desktops. A bug has been open for Firefox since 2007 and one for Chrome since 2009. What you can do outside of Firefox and Chrome, if the active TABs in different browser ...

If you have root access and you are willing to apply a hack system-wide (so it will affect other users on the same machine too), a quick hack that will do what you want would be to list the offending site in /etc/hosts: 127.0.0.3 www.problematic-site-name.example.com (If you are not using Linux then replace 127.0.0.3 with 127.0.0.1 because ...
