I am using eight desktops with Openbox on Gentoo linux.

There are ways to start an application on a certain
desktop via configuration. Or in other words: It doesn't
matter where a choose -- for example -- firefox from 
the menu...its window will alway pop up on -- say --
desktop 4.

I am looking for something different. I want to choose the desktop
via -- for example -- tint2. Select "firefox" via menu/commandline
or what else and change to another desktop.
After firefox has collected all its bits and pieces it should appear
on that desktop from where I started firefox and where I am currently.

Is it possible via openbox? ...or maybe via a helper tool?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!

Best regards,
