the firefox pkg includes installation of a 'remote' control tool
which is meant to find the firefox instance running on your
$DISPLAY and make it do things. It doesn't work.
the Netscape remote.c demonstration client also doesn't work.
install firefox, try using the remote client.
this hasn't worked for some time. This is a fresh send-pr to
try and trigger the pkg into a state to tag this problem
since previous send-pr are very old, and probably show against
mozilla or even netscape.
