Thanks. I've found something interesting since then:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mozrepl/
https://github.com/bard/mozrepl/wiki

It allows you to connect to your Firefox via telnet. Then changing the URL:

content.location.href = <new_url>

However, for this you need to install this add-on.
