Using AutoIt scripts with Mozilla Firefox

Recommended Posts

Astrid

I'm someone whose philosophy is, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Consequently I've been using scripts created by AutoIt (Version 2.64) for like a decade to fill in usernames and passwords for all the sites I regularly visit. I have shortcuts to these scripts parked in my Windows Favorites folder and all I have to do to run them is click on the links stored under Favorites.

Since installing Avast Antivirus more than a week ago my regular browser (Internet Explorer) is broken and will not surf. So until I fix the problem I'm stuck using Firefox. Firefox stores its bookmarks not in a folder but in some other fashion, so none of my many scripts imported successfully. I really want to keep using those handy scripts. Is there a workaround that will let me do so easily but not from Windows Favorites Folder?

I know I may be hopelessly out-of-date with how I use AutoIt and that more recent versions may do things entirely differently, but as I said, I've never felt the need to update to a newer version of AutoIt since what I had was working perfectly.

Thanks,

Astrid

It depends how you have coded your scripts but IE is so different compared to FF that I think there will be no fast fix to make your scripts run with FF.

There is a separate UDF for IE and another for FF so you may need to completely rewrite your scripts to work with FF.

I've had success using the FF.au3 UDF library, found You'll need to add the MozRepl add-on to make it work.

Another alternative is using a password manager add-on, such as LastPass Password Manager. And if it's security you're worried about, it can store all of your passwords, but not fill them in until you input your master password.
