I used to use chromium before and then, I could press
gx on an url and vim would open it in a new tab if a chromium instance was already running, otherwise create a new window.
But in firefox, when I press
gx on an url, vim opens a new firefox instance that is not even signed into my firefox account.
How do I change the behavior of
gx so that it opens a new tab of an already opened firefox instance?
N.B. The output of
lsb_release -a is as follows.
