Firefox/Internet explorer!

Recommended Posts

Hello:) I just wanted to know if it is possible to open a special URL using Firefox explorer, i managed to do it using Internet Explorer but not Firefox. The idea is that i am gonna click a button in my GUI that opens a special URL that is bound to that button using Functions:) If it is possible to make it a feature into AutoIt or give me any advice on how to do it:)

If Firefox is your default web browser then all you need is

$URL="www.google.com"
ShellExecute($URL)

As a matter of fact this would be the prefered method in most cases anyway because it uses the users default browser which is better than specifying a browser which may not exist on the users system.

^ that's true. :)

Even using the Run() method it's better to get the path to firefox.exe from the registry. The user may not have used the default folder. In my case even that won't work because I run FF as a portable app. Mainly because I only use it for testing pages.
