Not sure.  I see them first mentioned in the release notes for Firefox
2.0 from 2006:
At that point "-remote" was deprecated. 

However, back then they were spelled with one hyphen, i.e. "-new-tab"
and "-new-window".  I don't know, since when the double-hyphen version
are working.  To be on the save side, it is probably better to use
single-hyphen "-new-tab" and "-new-window"?
