Working with FIrefox windows

Recommended Posts


Hi, I wrote a very simple programm, which should open any website in newly created window. First  open any FF window manually and then run a script. All it can do is opening this website in manually opened FF window:

#include "FF.au3"
_FFstart('www.aegon.com', 2, 9)
if _FFIsConnected() then

Only condition is, that this second window should use a FF profile - "2" in this example. 9 is "new window" and "-no-remote" option, but I also tried to replace this "9" with "1". Does the same.

      Hi, I have a problem with working with different Firefox profiles. I  try to open a few firefox windows and try to manage them separately with autoit. I run 4 programs, each program open a different FF window (with Run command) but every other _FF operations are working on FIRST OPENED FF window. I wrote one program (file included) where I try 4 times to open one window, using the profile no $i, use _FFWIndowSelect() to work on this instance, try to open any webpage, open the next open (success) and to do something in this window, but it does everything on FIRST window. I tried to replace Run() command with _FFStart(url,no of profile,9) where 9 is 1 (new window)+8 (-no-remote - neccessary with different profiles) but I got a message('Firefox is already running but do not answer. To open a new window you have to close existing firefox process or restart system')
      How to open FF window with desired profile and work on it?
      I tried to include _FFWindowSelect before _FFConnect() command but it does the same result.
