my Firefox script starts with firefox wizards always

7 posts in this topic

hello I'm using a firefox script to access a web url, it's gathering weblogin url, username password etc from another server, but it fails because each time it runs firefox it launches with default firefox wizards such as importing bookmarks from IE and then a popup to check whether firefox is default browser or not.

 

how can I prevent this? what kind of code should I add?

if needed I can also share the script.

Does the same thing occur if you manually launch FF?

Please post your script for further assistance.

I attached the script. It launches FF over MS terminal server. Each time with wizards...

That is an important detail that you left out of your OP. ;-)

Suggest that you check out some of these links.

Can someone at least tell me, what kind of code should I add to make AutoIT go and click on the button saying "Cancel" when firefox asks for default browser check?

I eliminated all other features, but this default browser check is always coming.

      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

      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

      Hello, I've recently updated from Firefox 50 to 54.0.1.
      My Autoit script that previously worked fine, now seems to have erratic problems.
      It's almost as if some Send() commands are sometimes skipped when dealing with the Firefox UI (it's still mostly fine on the actual pages).

      To temporarly fix the problem, I had to put some Sleep(200) pauses and avoid grouping keys together (e.g: TAB 2), but I'm not exactly sure about the correct way to deal with this..
      Could this be caused by the new multiprocess feature? (e10s)
      Are there better Autoit commands or rules that I should use?

      How can I check if element is focused in Firefox using FF.au3 UDF?
      This is my try:
      I have prepared a function that checks if the object is focused:
       
      _FFCmd('FFau3.isfocused=function isfocused(a){try{return (a === document.activeElement)}catch(e){return}}') $oElm = _FFXPath("//*[@id='someId']") ConsoleWrite(_FFIsFocused($oElm)) Func _FFIsFocused($sElement = "") Local $isFoc = _FFCmd("FFau3.isfocused(" & $sElement & ")") Return $isFoc EndFunc ;==>_FFIsFocused Now, the javascript part is tested and it does return successfully.
      After a lot of try/fails I inserted an alert box in order to display the object being compared.
      Here is what I got
       
      The focused object is: [object XULElement]
      The object that I send for comparing is [object HTMLInputElement]
      Why is that?
