How to change Firefox Options

Recommended Posts

I have the code to install Firefox.  I'd like to change the options. This script starts to change the options but I can't figure out how to select menu on the left.  Comments in the code...

#RequireAdmin
;AutoIt_Debugger_Command:Disable_Debug
Global $title, $Text
_Au3RecordSetup()

If Not (ProcessExists("firefox.exe")) Then Run("C:\Program Files\" & "FireFox\FireFox.exe")
WinWait("Mozilla Firefox", "")
If Not WinActive("Mozilla Firefox", "") Then WinActivate("Mozilla Firefox", "")
WinWaitActive("Mozilla Firefox", "")
Local $hWnd = WinGetHandle('[Active]')
$title = WinGetTitle("[Active]")
WinActivate($title, "")
$Text = WinGetText("[ACTIVE]")
$Text = StringStripCR($Text)
$TextLine = StringSplit($Text, @LF)
; $TextLine[0] - will be count of lines in $Text
; $TextLine[1] - will be content of first line in $Text
; MsgBox(0, @ScriptName,  'Line ' & @ScriptLineNumber & @CRLF & "Menu should be open " & '---' & ' (' &  $title & ') ' & '---')

If ($title = "New Tab - Mozilla Firefox" Or "Mozilla Firefox") Then

    WinWait($title, "")
    If Not WinActive($title, "") Then WinActivate($title, "")
    WinWaitActive($title, "")
    Send("{F10}")
    Sleep(100)
    Send("{ALTDOWN}t{ALTUP}")
;~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
;   Turning on the menu line with Alt-t works temporarily
;       I'd like to find out how to make it perminant.
;~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

    Sleep(100)
    Send("o")     ;Options
    WinWait("Options", "")
    If Not WinActive("Options", "") Then WinActivate("Options", "")
    WinWaitActive("Options", "")
    ;Sleep(100)
    Send("{Tab 15}")
    Send("{UP}{Space}{Tab}")
    Send("c{SHIFTDOWN};{SHIFTUP}\Dnload")
    Sleep(500)
    Send("{SHIFTDOWN}Tab{SHIFTUP}{Down}")
; The above works
;~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
; I need AutoIt to select the Home icon on the left menu
;     Then Homepage and new windows
;        Then Firefox Home (Default) and change it to Custom URL's
;          Then Down one box and enter "https:google.com" (without the quotes)
;~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
EndIf

Exit

Func _Au3RecordSetup()
    ;AutoIt_Debugger_Command:Disable_Debug
    Opt('WinWaitDelay', 100)
    Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
    Opt('WinDetectHiddenText', 1)
    Opt('MouseCoordMode', 0)
    Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)     ;0-off
    ; Set so that tray displays current line number
    HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")     ;If you press ESC the script will stop
    ;AutoIt_Debugger_Command:Enable_Debug
EndFunc   ;==>_Au3RecordSetup

Func _Exit()
    Sleep(100)
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

Thanks,

You could just create a user.js file in the FF user profile dir, and add user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "www.google.com");

Or search for the "user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "DEFAULT FF HOMEPAGE");" in prefs.js and replace the default ff homepage.

More info here
