How to automate a function while on firefox using the .au3 file PLEASE READ

Recommended Posts

Hello Im a noob to coding,

I wanted to know how to visit a website or perform function while on a webpage.

For example,

Heres my script:

run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe")

ShellExecute "www.gmail.com"

When I run the .au3 file, it opens up firefox and goes to gmail.

NOW while I am using firefox (opened by the above .au3 script), and say I decided to go to "yahoo.com" how do I automate it to AUTOMATICALLY search "news" or "stocks" or anything I want only WHEN it visits yahoo.com.


say I visit "www.1saleaday.com", how do it automate it to automatically open "www.slickdeals.com" in another tab, ONLY when I visit "www.1saleaday.com"?


What if I wanted it to open in another window exept a tab? how would I code that?

Im trying to create my own shortcut to firefox using my .au3 script, and to always use it to use firefox. I have alot of sites that I normally check when I log onto my PC and wanted to create a faster way to access ALL of the webpages I visit

Also I already download ff.au3 and other requried files


Please help!

Don't double post, you already have a thread open for the same issue. Stick to one at a time.

Also, writing in all caps is considered shouting, those who want to read this will, those who don't aren't going to be persuaded by you yelling it.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
