I have used FF.au3 a great deal and I am truly greatly to those that wrote it :) I was sad when Mozilla forced web extensions.

Another work around (until that is blocked) is using nightly and about:config extensions.legacy.enabled = True.

I would argue though this is a losing battle and its best to move onto a supported platform. Sticking to Firefox 54 - 60 forever will run into compatibility issues sooner or later :)

From this thread the best two alternatives are IUIAutomation and Webdriver.

Selenium Webdriver seems to be recognised throughout the testing industry and is similar to FF in the manor of xPaths.

How can I run firefox in hidden.  

My version firefox is 50.0

And version udf is 

My code simple is 

_FFStart("https://website.com", default, True, True)

Then firefox Showed up. And after that, it was hidden.  Has _FFStar in hidden activity like _IECreate in hidden? Or another solution? 

Thank you ...

Trying to submit form on AngularJS :evil: I can fill it but can't send because there is a internal mistakes checking (for correct e-mail and not empty fields).

May be you can tell me how to simulate keypressing without "Send" command (it doesn't work on this machine)?

site: 3bet.pro/main/login  (it's in russian, but very simple: login, pass, red button = submit)

$login = _FFXPath('//html/body/div[1]/div/div/div[2]/form/input[1]')
$pass = _FFXPath('//html/body/div[1]/div/div/div[2]/form/input[2]')

_FFCmd(".getElementsByClassName('popup-input-button cursor-pointer').item(2).click()")

it's very strange but the method with ControlSend are working (just Send - not). And for special characters that can not be sent (like @) I found a trick with a clipboard:

ControlSend("[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]", "", "", "{CTRLDOWN}v{v up}{Ctrlup}")

Welcome to the AutoIt forum.

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - and then you will understand why you will get no help. See you soon with a legitimate question I hope.

ah sorry , ty for the reply.

I try again with an appropriate question; how can I control multiple tab of the broswer at the same time? for example, search on google one thing on 4 open windows.
