Hi,

The code below finds out the URL of the current (active) browser tab for Firefox :

; Function Name:  OpenGetURL()
;
; Parameter(s):  $sURL            [optional] Address of page to open,
;                           if this is empty string (default), then returned Url from address field of particular tab.
;               $hWin      [optional] Number of tab:
;                              -1 = Current tab.
;                              0 = New tab (when opening).
;               $RetType     [optional] Definds returned value:
;                              0 = String with Title and URL address.
;                              1 = Array with 3 elements...
;                                 [0] = Title
;                                 [1] = URL address
;                                 [2] = String with Title And URL address.
;               $Server            [optional] Serever to open/get Url in/from.
;               $iWait   [optional] Waiting Timeout in milliseconds, on overload will return an error.
;
; Requirement(s):   None
; Return Value(s):  On Success -  See 'Parameter(s)'.
;               On Failure -  Empty string and set @error as following:
;                  1 = Error to open Dll (user32.dll)
;                  2 = Error Initializing DDE (@extended include more details about the returned value from DllCall).
;                  3 = Othe DDE Errors (@extended include more details about the returned value from DllCall).

    DllCall($hDll, "int", "DdeUninitialize", "int", DllStructGetData($uIdInst, 1))
    DllClose($hDll)
   
    If StringRight($sData[0], 3) = ',""' Then $sData[0] = StringTrimRight($sData[0], 3)
    If $sURL = '' Then $sURL = StringRegExpReplace($sData[0], '^"([^"]*?)".*','"\1"')
   
    If $RetType = 1 Then
        Local $iRetTitle = StringReplace(StringTrimLeft($sData[0], StringLen($sURL)+1), '\"', '"')
        Local $RetURL[3] = [StringReplace($sData[0], '\"', '"'), $sURL, $iRetTitle]
        Return $RetURL
    EndIf
   
    Return $sURL
EndFunc

It works for Internet Explorer too : Replace "Firefox" with "IExplore"

But please, How can it work with Microsoft Edge ?

Example which works with Edge with autohotkey : http://autohotkey.com/board/topic/111114-get-the-url-of-the-current-active-browser-tab/

Thanks for your answer
