I want to open a URL in Firefox always in a new Window and not in a new tab.

It is on my raspberry PI on iceweasel and I just can't find a soultion for my problem.

What do I have:

firefox -private-window https://myurl.com/

Is there any Parameter I can set that it open in a new window or do I have to edit the iceweasel settings?
