autoit script not working since firefox 2 installed

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I had made an autoit script which was working fine with the old version of firefox. It would open FF in a new window and go to a website to renew my library loans. Since installing the new version of FF, it opens two windows and the maximised window goes to my homepage instead of the library website. Can anyone help?

The line causing the problem is:

Run("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -new-window http://library.ucl.ac.uk", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Thanks in advance.

Tim

What happens when you strip off the -new-window parameter? Does it still open a new window?

Then it opens a new tab. But because i use mouse coordinates, if it opens in a new tab the buttons are at different coordinates to if its a new window.

If it worked with an older version of FF, and not with the new one .. do you think the problem might lie with the new version not recognising the old one's commandline parameters?

How can you check to see if this is possible?
