Ok. I did the following tests:

- Tried your script. From Firefox, it doesn't seem to run at all. From the 
command-line, it opens TWO emacs windows, one in a blank  "server" buffer and 
another with the email I want. Both are connected to the correct server, 
though. 
- My old script (as listed below) does exactly what it should from the command 
line; it's, apparently, just from Mozilla that it creates a new server.
