Firefox output in the command prompt on Windows? Foxyeah!

On Linux and MacOS is quite normal to see the standard output in the shell when running Firefox from the command prompt.

On Windows, this isn’t that easy, as the “-console” command line switch creates a new window that quickly disappears when Firefox shuts down. Luckily, there’s an interesting option that seems to produce the desired behaviour on Windows: “-attach-console“.

As reported on MDN, “[…] use -attach-console to use the existing console.”.
