I tried those settings. No luck. I also tried --use in View_source.editor.args. No luck. I'm using FF 3.6.24.

I understand. And thanks. I just want FF and kate to work the way I want. :)

Yes, a lot of hammering, screaming and kicking, which is absurd. No software should be that cantankerous or difficult to configure. I am using the --use parameter in all shortcuts and *.desktop files, and like you, eventually tamed kate to my liking. Yet I can't get FF to use the same window that is already open.
