Ok I've been looking at AutoIt and the AutoIt script below will :

1. Check to see if Firefox is running, if not open a new instance.
2. Open a new tab and load a url.


--------------------------------------------------------
;~ Check if Firefox open

If Not ProcessExists("Firefox.exe") Then
    Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Mozilla Firefox\Firefox.exe", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
;~ Allow time for the browser to load
sleep(5000) ;- 5 secs
EndIf

;~ Make Firefox the active window

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode",2)
WinActivate("Firefox","")

;~ Define url to load in new tab & Send Ctrl+t keystrokes

Dim $adress="www.pointandsee.co.uk"
Send("^t")
Send($adress)
Send("{ENTER}")
--------------------------------------------------------


Compile this into a standalone with AutoIt, then use LiveCode shell start to
run tah exe.
