Weird - works 100% for me. Perhaps your 'firefox' is not calling the right 
startup script or something?
Also, if FF is open and I do the above, I get a new tab.

Well, I just tried:
firefox ../fundy.html
(From a sub dir to test) and it works too.

and desktop urls etc. I just find I do my heavy lifting in FF.
