Bug#666716: -no-remote in conjunction with -new-tab doesn't work anymore

The cmd line switches -new-tab and -new-window don't work anymore if
the browser was initially started with the cmd line switch -no-remote.
Trying to open a new tab in a running browser then results in a
message box saying 'Iceweasel is already running, but is not
responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing
iceweasel process, or restart your system'.
This behaviour was introduced some time ago and I think there was a
similar issue some time (years?) ago.
1. start a new browser process:
$ iceweasel -no-remote http://<insert your url here> &
2. try to open a new tab in the running browser:
$ iceweasel -new-tab http://<insert your url here> &
