Some terminals need to be able to automaticaly start Mozilla (or another browser if more convenient) and visit a prespecified page. How is it possible to write a script that runs localy and when invoked it fires up the browser and visits the page? This does not need to be overly complicated.

When that "script" is invoked, Firefox will open up and head off to Google.
