#include<FF.au3>

24 posts in this topic

I know how to include ie.au3 and use it to control ie, however I can't find the one for Firefox! (It says FF.au3 doesn't exist)

Can someone please tell me what is the name of the one for Firefox? I'd REALLY appreciate it. :whistle:

it's not possible to make one for firefox because of limitations...(idiots didnt include COM :whistle: )

you're as disappointed as the rest of us.

What would make you think because there is one type of function, you could just put #include <FF.au3> and some how magical functions to interact with Firefox would happen?

Idiots? I'm sure they know exactly why they didn't implement it.

Firefox is a cross platform browser so making objects for windows users is an idiotic assumption to take. If you search around, then you may find a cross platform COM object library for automating Firefox but is rather futile when you already have IE to use that is available on all windows installations.

If you had any clue about Firefox, then you'd know it's virtually all COM. They just didn't make a publicly exposed interface so there's no way to interact with it. However, from what I understand, most of the internal code is designed in the form of COM interfaces.

Well I don't have any clue about the internal workings of firefox, and nor do I care. I did mean publicly available for manipulation, and that should have been obvious had you looked at the context of my post. So I fail to see why your comment is relevant.

You'll have to explain how your little "jest" was any more relevant than my comment, I'm afraid. And while on the subject of relevance... I bet you can figured out where this is going from here... when are you ever relevant? And speaking of obvious, what's most obvious and explicitly stated is yet again you're sticking your comments into a subject you know zero about. That's a common theme from you.

So basically.. there isn't one for FF yet.. even though it's more secure/faster then IE and there is an IE one.. and there is a bunch of COM stuff in FF that you can uses to make one?

Then can someone please make one? Or tell me how I can make one? Please? :whistle:

The source code for all of the UDFs ship with AutoIt in clear text. Please do go take a look at them so that you might get a slight appreciation for the implications of: "could somebody please make one, I really want it".

When you say "publicly exposed" what comes to mind is a visible gui, E.G. the buttons that I can see and click on.

And I'm not really sure what your meaning is.

You made one for that piece of shit ie, why can't one be made for Firefox?

And saying "read the fucking source code" doesn't help much..

Have you done any research after seeing the comments posted ?

Have you found any COM function available for FF ?
