Another firefox question :\

6 posts in this topic

All I want is a way to start firefox and get it to navigate to a webpage on start up.

Sort of like _IECreate("google.com") would just create a window with google. I need it with firefox. PPPPPLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAASSEE!!!! ;)

If Firefox is your default browser this should work for you.

#include <Process.au3>
$rc = _RunDos("start Http://www.autoitscript.com")


Get Beta versions Here Get latest SciTE editor Here AutoIt 1-2-3 by Valuater - A great starting point.

How about something like this?

$s_URLNav = 'http://www.therks.com'

$s_Firefox = 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox'
$s_FirefoxVersion = RegEnumKey($s_FireFox, 1)
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'Firefox not installed')
    Exit
EndIf

$s_FirefoxPath = RegRead($s_Firefox & '\' & $s_FirefoxVersion & '\Main', 'PathToExe')
If @error Then
    MsgBox(16, 'Error', 'Firefox not installed')
    Exit
EndIf

Run('"' & $s_FirefoxPath & '" ' & $s_URLNav)

Might need more error checking, but I'll leave that up to someone else. I'm not doing all the work.
