Running firefox in private mode with URL

Recommended Posts

Xenobiologist

Hello guys,

I 've written a little application in Autoit which starts IE or firefox with a html file which is generated before. The file contains the URL which shall be started.

What I'm trying to do is start firefox in private mode and directly load the file.

This doesn't work. All I have done successfully is start firefox in private mode and then "ControlSend" the complete filename (path) and hit enter.

Then firefox transforms the path into the file:/// ... syntax and loads the url.

This works, but using ControlSend isn't the best way, because it sometimes fails when a sign gets lost during send-process.

Does anybody know an option to just use an Autoit command to run a private window with the given filename (path)?

The exact call looks this way at the moment:

                ShellExecute(@ProgramFilesDir & '\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe ', '-private-window ', @ProgramFilesDir)
;~                 ShellExecute(@ProgramFilesDir & '\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe ', ' -private-window' & ' -url file:///' & StringReplace($filename, '\', '/'), @ProgramFilesDir)
                ConsoleWrite('private Mode FF' & @CRLF)
                Local $ff_handle = WinWaitActive('Privater Modus - Mozilla Firefox (Privater Modus)', '', 5)
                Sleep(100)
;~                 Opt('SendAttachMode', 1)
                Opt('SendKeyDelay', 5)
                Opt('SendKeyDownDelay', 1)
                ControlFocus($ff_handle, '', '')
                ControlSend($ff_handle, '', '', $filename & '{ENTER}')

The file looks like this:

<html>
    <head>
        <title> Reporting-Manager ANMELDUNG </title>
    <script>
        function createCookie(name, value, days) {
            if (days) {
            var date = new Date();
            date.setTime(date.getTime() + (days * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000));
            var expires = "; expires=" + date.toGMTString();
        }
            else var expires = "";
            document.cookie = name + "=" + value + expires + ";domain=.dsp-mgY.gaxeg.de;path=/cognos01";
    }

        function eraseCookie(name) {
        createCookie(name, "", -1);
}

            function logMeIn(){ 
                window.opener=null;
                eraseCookie("cc_session");
                eraseCookie("caf");
                eraseCookie("cam_passport");
                eraseCookie("userCapabilities");
                eraseCookie("CRN");
                eraseCookie("CGC");
                eraseCookie("usersessionid");
                eraseCookie("cea-ssa");

                document.getElementById("formLogin").submit();
            };

            onload = function() {
                        logMeIn();
                     }

    </script>

You mean this?

ShellExecute(@ProgramFilesDir & '\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe ', $filename & ' -private-window ', @ProgramFilesDir)

This leads to a normal firefox window in which the automatic login from the file happens and to a second firefox window. The second is private but doesn't start any URL or something else.

Sorry, I meant that the "-url" parameter is not necessary, because the url itself is a parameter :

ShellExecute(@ProgramFilesDir & '\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe ', ' -private-window' & ' file:///' & StringReplace($filename, '\', '/'), @ProgramFilesDir)

I tried that before. Same behauviour. Firefox opens two windows.

1 - with the login is NON-Private

2 - private-mode window without any further action (like start new tab in private mode)

I created a new script with just this one line

ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", ' -private-window' & ' file:///' & StringReplace("C:\Users\xf01145\AppData\Local\Temp\bank21-Reporting-Manager.html", '\', '/'), @ProgramFilesDir)

File is opened in normal mode and there is an additional window opened in private mode . :mad2:

OK, I will try it tomorrow at work (with 24 ESR too).

If you cannot do it with the -private-window launching option, another way could be to use a temporary FF profile to do the same thing than a private browsing.

ShellExecuteWait(@ProgramFilesDir & '\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe ', '-profile "' & @TempDir & "\temporaryProfile" & '" http://www.google.com', @ProgramFilesDir)
DirRemove(@TempDir & "\temporaryProfile", 1)

But sure, it's less clean...

Well, I reproduce the same issue at work with the version 24 (ESR). It's a know issue, which seems to be corrected with some last versions...

Here is a link for a conversation about the same thing : http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2734967.

If you have to use a long time supported version, the next release (31 ESR) is on rails, scheduled for July (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/)

You can also try with my previous code, which use a temporary profile (equivalent to a private browsing).

Ah thanks, so it is a bug in firefox. I tried the example with the temp profile. Same result as before.

So, I will keep the ControlSend solution until we update to version 31.

Thanks!

      All,
      I have decided to release my code for the automated clean install, set up and configuration of Mozilla Firefox with a Mozilla.cfg file included in my example as well. I seen an older version of this and decided to post mine on here. This is Windows 10 friendly.
      The whole process once compiled executes in about 15 seconds on my machine from start to finish as it is extremely fast.
      If you want to include your own Mozilla.cfg into the mix simply place Your Mozilla.cfg file in the same directory as the exe when it is run. If you do not wish to embed the Mozilla.cfg file into the script as a back up in case you forget you need to remove that line of code to embed it.
      I hope this helps some people esp those wanting to understand how to use a cfg file to set default settings for all users without having to do it by putting all those files and folders in the defaultapp data folders.

      Hello,
      usually I do Win automations, so I have no skills at all to handle HTML forms :-/
      The script to catch and syntax check  the required information from Excel is done.
      Now I'd like to automate the upload using this form, too:
       
      http://flashcardsdeluxe.com/flashcards/Upload.aspx
      What browser is easiest to do so? (IE, Chrome, FF) The Values $DeckCode, $DeckName, $DeckDefinition shall go to their HTML form fields finally "click" the button "upload flashcards" <table width="70%" class="cssCenter" border="0"> <tr> <td style="width: 1%">Deck&nbsp;Code</td> <td style="width: 100%"><input name="ctlDeckCode" type="text" id="ctlDeckCode" style="width:50%;" /> (no spaces allowed)</td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td style="width: 1%">Deck&nbsp;Name</td> <td style="width: 100%"><input name="ctlDeckName" type="text" id="ctlDeckName" style="width:50%;" /> (optional)</td> <td style="width: 1%" align="right"><input type="submit" name="ctlUpload" value="Upload Flashcards" id="ctlUpload" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" style="padding-top: 5px" >Flashcard&nbsp;Text</td> <td colspan="2"><textarea name="ctlFlashcardText" rows="2" cols="20" id="ctlFlashcardText" style="height:280px;width:100%;"></textarea></td> </tr> </table> If someone kindly could jump in showing how to address just one of the input fields and how to "click" the "upload flashcards" button, I should be able to do the rest myself.
      TIA, Rudi.

      Profiler - yet another backup script for Firefox and Thunderbird profiles
      It automatically detects the last recently used profile directories of Firefox and Thunderbird (installed versions, no portables).
      Clicking the Backup-Button creates a complete Backup of the found profiles with a timestamp.
      Restore deletes the according profile dir and extracts the content of the selected archive into the profile directory.
      Uses Winrar as compression tool, but feel free to change it to your needs
      Best regards
      Marc

      I'm trying to get the output data from https://www.guilded.gg but it uses a web app that generates that output on the fly and this doesn't show up in the page source.
      Only in web inspector of each browser does this data show up. How do I read this data in autoit (equivalent to the web inspector)
       
      thank you
