Well, the general way to let anything accept connections from firefox,
and have the messages affect the layout of firefox is to use the HTTP.
So, have your Emacs server run elnode or the web-server package and you
are away.

Another option would be to use one of the JS repls that are around. The
REPL runs on the browser but displays in Emacs.
