There were a couple of bugs with GoToVenue plus Firefox command-line helpers 
can't have switches, see:

try replacing /usr/bin/GoToVenue with this version (which is suitable as a 
firefox helper):
it includes a patch based on the one included with the above bugzilla 

If it works fine, I'll probably add it to the AG CVS.
