I need to script the closing of tabs with specific titles in FireFox. Is there a FireFox equivalent to the AppleScript examples below?
Close tabs in Safari:
tell application "Safari"
delete (every tab of every window where its name contains "[done]")
tell application "Google Chrome"
delete (every tab of every window where its title contains "[done]")
Since Firefox doesn't have any AppleScript support you'll need to rely on UI scripting. Of course, Firefox's non-standard UI doesn't help either but it's still possible. Try this:
tell application "System Events" to tell process "firefox" set frontmost to true repeat with w from 1 to count of windows perform action "AXRaise" of window w set startTab to name of window 1 repeat if name of window 1 contains "[done]" then keystroke "w" using command down else keystroke "}" using command down end if delay 0.2 if name of window 1 is startTab then exit repeat end repeat end repeat end tell
