The Firefox OS Simulator is a Firefox Add-on application. It downloads about [?] 30MB of data and it will being a B2G for Deskop binary file. The add-on application has code that seats in the Firefox side and it talks with B2B binary via http. This experiment is an exercise that was done at the Firefox camp in Sao Paulo during the Campus Party. Our goal was to bypass Firefox OS Simulator Add-on interface and simply call the B2G application from the command line. This is an FAQ interview style article.
