Im not too sure about FireFox, because i dont automate it but it should be similar to automating IE

You will have to attach to FF and then send commands to it. (ControlSend)

F1 will open the help file in AutoIT.

This example is straight out of the help docs

ControlSend("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", "Edit1", "This is a line of text in the notepad window")

You don't use controlsend() with Firefox. You need to use the commands in FF.au3 to do what you need. Understand this is somewhat more advanced scripting so you may want to take AutoIt 1 2 3 (in the example scripts section of the forum) before you make the attempt.
