Thanks, I've tried those before. When launching with --new-tab:
$ ./Browser/start-tor-browser --allow-remote --new-tab example.com
It complains with the following popup dialog and does not open any new tabs:
"Tor Browser is already running, but is not responding.
To open a new window, you must first close the existing
Tor Browser process, or restart your system."
The --allow-remote --new-tab method works fine with unmodified Firefox,
just not with TBB.
