Apps on Android store their data in /data/data/[package_name], so Firefox should be keeping its data in /data/data/org.mozilla.firefox. NOTE: To access this directory you need root access.

The Sleipnir browser for Android has an option for making all tabs remain loaded even when the phone is offline.

Apparently there is an Android specific Firefox browser plug-in called Tabs Backup. This seem to work like charm! It places a text file in /storage/emulated/0/Android/tabs_backup/ (Aka. /sdcard/Android/tabs_backup/) called backup_DDMMYYY_hhmmss.txt. However, it would still be interesting to know how to do this from command line.

At least for these two extensions Firefox would play the file in its default player rather than giving you the option to choose an external app to play that file. Thankfully, Firefox didn't choose to hard-code this behavior in its code ...

This is not possible. You can, however, run your own DNS server on a local network, that could emulate this behaviour on all appliances that are connected via it.
