To download stock data, I use queries like:

which are programmatically sent to the browser exe.

If I use this query with chrome or edge, those browsers execute the query and then close the tab used to execute the query. This is NOT the case with Firefox, which will accumulate as many tabs as queries.

All these tabs are empty, but I am forced to delete each one and there may be dozens.

Strollin' around

Agree. You'd think there's be an option for this in the extensive setting but I presume you've checked and there isn't?

Well ... if you provide a url to the firefox.exe/bin you are asking it to open a tab with that url (or a new window if no instance is running) ... so I would rather say that the behaviour of chrome/edge (closing that requested tab) is unexpected / wrong. 

Also overall this sounds more like a job for a CLI tool like cURL or wget.

But if you really want to you might be able to use this:

to close the tabs automatically after a short time. Hope it helps.
