And in which man page is this cryptic notation documented???   :-)

The firefox browser may be the single program that most desperately
needs a man page.  There are mysteries inside enigmas ... in this SW.

IMHO, a program that lacks a man page isn't worth using.
Unfortunately, that seems to include the majority of new stuff.
