Latest/Easiest/Best way of controlling Firefox?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to determine the latest/easiest/best way (as of May 2016) to control & interact with Firefox using Autoit.

To the best I've been able to determine, there have been two different ways to do this. Once upon a time, there was something called "Mozilla ActiveX control", but given all the security warnings I receive whenever I try to download it (the original host site appears to be absent or invalid), I'd prefer to avoid it. The other approach is/was to use a UDF called "FF.au3" developed -- but apparently no longer supported for English speakers -- by Stilgar (old thread is here: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/95595-ffau3-v0601b-10/). The most recent thread I could find (in English) was started by Danp2 here: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/167661-ffau3-v0601b-15/

Although it certainly seems like using the FF UDF is the most recent and possibly only still-valid approach, getting anything sufficiently useful done with it strikes me as rather difficult, in part because the English documentation is so incomplete as to be unhelpful (and apparently incorrect as well), but also because it appears that to accomplish what I need to do might well require intimate knowledge of Firefox internals or APIs (maybe XULs too).  For example, there are functions such as _FFCmd() that takes arbitrary/undocumented strings, and _FFGetValue() and_FFSetValue() with no English documentation at all (besides the minimal function descriptions in the FF.au3 file itself).

So, my question is: What is the latest and/or easiest and/or best way of interacting with Firefox using Autoit?  And what else do I need to learn first in order to use it effectively (such as Firefox developer APIs, etc)?

Thanks!

@Mbee,

let me offer my personal preferences for web automation:

first - use IE. are you locked on to Firefox? the built-in IE UDF makes IE automation quite easy, plus the advantage of no-one using IE for regular browsing, so you have a considerable amount of freedom to configure it to your needs, and even work with a hidden sessions, for headless automation purposes - so user workflow is not impacted.

(yeah, i know - i never thought i'd actually recommend IE... ;))

there is only one downside to automating IE - automation of download is not possible. this is a "security feature" set by Microsoft.

second - manipulate a 3rd-party engine. you can install the iMacro extension for Filefox. this is a scripting engine designed for browser automation, so the downside is that you need to learn the syntax (not too hard), but the upside is that it is a very capable engine, able to easily operate controls that other methods find difficult. use AutoIt to write the iMacro script at run time, launch the extension to execute the script, and collect the returned information or error.

(note: there are iMacro extensions for Chrome and IE too. the extension only is free, look at the bottom of the download page).

finally - use the FF UDF. if IE and iMacro won't cut it - then i find the FF UDF the best approach.

IUIAutomation - 

 

It was a bit hard for me to grasp it and start to use it for some simple tasks but it seems to work well.  The best thing about learning it is how versatile it is.

It may or may not have all the capabilities you need, but its worth looking at.

As far as the FF UDF is concerned I think Stilgar is still developing this UDF.

      Hi everyone.
      I want to ask about this : 
      I want it runs from 1 to 100 and It opens 10 firefox profiles then access youtube. After I close a firefox window, the loop runs and wait for another window close until loop ends
      I have a loop like this.
      Func launch() Local $from = Int(GUICtrlRead($input1)) Local $to = Int(GUICtrlRead($input2)) If $to <> "" Then While $from <= $to Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") $to=$to+1 WEnd Else Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") EndIf EndFunc Is there any solution?
      Thank you!

      my FF.au3 does get included but my script does not open firefox. 
      here is my code so far:
      #include <FF.au3> _FFStart("https://www.google.com", Default, 0) I am using firefox portable version 52.0 Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  
      The code runs but nothing happens. I think the FF.au3 cannot find or connect to the firefox portable.

      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 Experts,
      I am working on modifying table data of a browser currently in IE (soon in FF)
      My sequence of operations:
      1. Activate Browser
      2. Get Browser table
      3. Modify data  in table
      4. Suppress any warning/error message from webpage
      5. Activate the Webpage again 
      6. Send {F11} key sequence twice to achieve some update without Updating form ( {F5})
       
      My problem is at Step 5, as it activates the wrong window ( last used application rather than my browser window)
      My code snippet for it as follows
      $bFoundWindow = False Local $aList = WinList("[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.*Internet Explorer.*)]") Local $hWND = 0 For $i = 1 To $aList[0][0] If False = $bFoundWindow And $aList[$i][0] <> "" And BitAND(WinGetState($aList[$i][1]), 1) Then WinActivate($aList[$i][1]) ; 1. Activate Browser window WinSetState ( $aList[$i][1], "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) $hWND = $aList[$i][1] $objEditIE = _IEAttach ($aList[$i][1], "hwnd") $oTitles = _IETagNameGetCollection($objEditIE, "TITLE") For $oTitle In $oTitles $sTitle = $oTitle.innerText If $sTitle = $searchString Then MsgBox(0,"APPLICATION Found", "Got Edit List Window", 1) $bFoundWindow = True ExitLoop EndIf Next EndIf Next If False = $bFoundWindow Then MsgBox(0,"Error","Please launch Edit window for updating values in Browser prior to script execution",10) Exit EndIf ; MY CODE HERE TO MODIFY TABLE ; 2. Get Browser table ; 3. Modify data  in table ; Check if message from webpage pop-up window exists if so click ok on it Local $nCounter = 0 Local $nMaxCounter = 5 while 1 If WinExists("Message from webpage","") Then ControlClick("Message from webpage","","Button1","primary",1) ;4. Suppress any warning/error message from webpage Else $nCounter = $nCounter + 1 Sleep(100) ;MsgBox(0,"Counter", $nCounter, 1) If $nCounter = $nMaxCounter Then ExitLoop EndIf WEnd ;5. Activate the Webpage again  WinActivate($hWND) ; have already tried WinActivate($aList[$i][1]) but no success ;6. Send {F11} key sequence twice to achieve some update without Updating form ( {F5}) Send("{F11}") WinActivate($hWND) ;WinActivate($aList[$i][1]) Sleep(100) Send("{F11}") Any support will be highly appreciated
