Firefox support? Mozrepl? Please help

Recommended Posts

Clerythecleric

So i have this web scraping tool i made that people at my work use, Everyone loves it and everything is going great however people are slowly starting to download and use Firefox Quantum which doesn't have MozREpl and so the _ff library doesn't work and so basically i'm screwed. Does anyoen know if mozrepl will get support for the new firefox browser? or is there another way i can scrape the pages into HTML files (thats all it has to do) from firefox quantum?

 

 

Many Thanks
Anthony

You're sure there was no other thread with a similar question in our forums when you searched? ;)

Hello, mozrepl was updated 5 years ago for the last time and since, the whole plugin API was changed. So, even if it's still possible to access firefox internals as it was, it would require a lot of code rewriting...

I just tried to run mozrepl with waterfox (which still supports old plugins), but it erratic and buggy. Sometime even the built-in exemple don't work. So, i guess it's time to switch to something else...

Another approach is to use the WebDriver UDF which is currently under development. Search the forum and you will find the relevant thread ;)
