Why AU3 doesn't support actions in all browsers? It supports only IE.

AutoIt doesn't support ANY browsers. AutoIt supports COM Object interfaces.

IE provides a COM accessible Document Object Model (DOM), so AutoIt can automate IE.

Mozilla Firefox, for example, sees the COM interface as a security hole and does not support it, therefore AutoIt cannot automate Firefox.

:P

Search for Firefox and/or FF.AU3 in the forum(s).

There is a library available to connect ot Firefox with almost same functionality as for IE.

It requires installing a plug-in to Firefox that in turn provides the COM interface. This is OK if you are only working on your own instance of Firefox, but impractical for distribution to other computers (unless you are a network admin who could push that package down to all Firefox users in you domain).

:P
