Is there a particular browser that is conducive to being set up via a console instead of the GUI? Firefox doesn't seem to be it.

I'm not sure what do you mean by "set up"?

I'm hoping for a more mainstream browser. I've had nothing but bad luck with midori and (to a lesser degree) epiphany.

I don't know if this is what you mean by 'set up', but check out the following long list of Chromium command line switches:

It's very comprehensive.

Chromium really does rule. Here's exactly what I was looking for:

Firefox doesn't have capabilities like that. Those command line switches are great too.

"set up" was your words. Thats why I was asking since it did not make sense

In case you want to do more than just to create the initial config via command line, I recomment https://github.com/smblott-github/chromix.

Useful if you want to open/close/reload/switch tabs or edit bookmarks via commandline while google-chrome/chromium is running.
