Thanks for the feedback.  Actually,
claims that one can do

	mozilla -remote "openurl(http://www.mozilla.org)"

but this does not work for me (version M18-3).

Btw, the search engine does not work either, and e.g. the FAQ parts do
not display at all.

That's all?  Does that start a new version of konqueror if one is
already up and running?

Hmm ...

For gnome-help-browser, one can apparently do

	gnome-help-browser URL

but I have yet to figure out how to use an existing help-browser ...
