I would like a C# button to launch a firefox add-on that is a sqlite manager:

http://code.google.com/p/sqlite-manager/wiki/SupportedApplications

The run-line specified in the above doc: firefox -chrome chrome://sqlitemanager/content/sqlitemanager.xul works great from anywhere but from my C# application.  (The system cannot find the file specified.)

In fact, I want to load the actual database (I have a sqlite database path). So I would like to even do "firefox -chrome chrome://sqlitemanager/content/sqlitemanager.xul C:\Whatever.sqlite".

That would be ideal.

Have you tried using Process.Start?
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("firefox", "-chrome chrome://sqlitemanager/content/sqlitemanager.xul");

I did try that but forgot the code snippet.

Your syntax works. Thanks!

Any clue how I can feed it the database path? When I try the code below, it opens the file with a save-as dialog ... ("What should firefox do with this file? Open with [browse], save file, do this automatically ...")
Process.Start("firefox", "-chrome chrome://sqlitemanager/content/sqlitemanager.xul" + " C:\\X\\Y.sqlite");
