Hi Bryan:

Unfortunately, firefox -browser only opens a new window in the same
firefox process you're already running. I'm not sure but I think a
single process cannot have windows in two different X displays at
once, at least that seems to be the case. So the best I can do right
now is run two different firefox processes, one on each display, and
use a distinct profile for each process, since firefox puts a lock on
the profile directory when running.
