Hi,

Is this possible to record the right click and further options generated on right click through imacros in firefox.
am trying to copy data through this option.
so is it possible to copy the data and write its value to csv. ( i know we can extract data to csv but getting formatting issues through firefox)

Thank you.

Yeah, the 'EVENT' Mode is able to record some "basic" Right-Click with "BUTTON=2" instead of "BUTTON=0" (Left-Click), but it stops there, you cannot select any Menu Option...

A more "promising" way to investigate is, still using the 'EVENT' Mode, I see all Copy Options from your Add-on have some Shortcuts that usually work with the 'EVENT' Mode, except that in your case, those Shortcuts all look like they need a Combination of 'Ctrl^Alt^c^LeftClick' for example, which is Keyboard + Mouse, but Mouse Actions are recorded as 'CLICK' Events and Keyboard Actions are recorded as 'KEYPRESS' Events (+ 'MODIFIERS' eventually), but I would think you cannot combine them together, but you can try of course... Maybe it will work with 2 Statements...

Or maybe those Shortcuts are customizable and you can modify/"simplify" them...

But, I would still think it would be easier to let the 'EXTRACT' Mechanism handle the Extraction (and the Save), I gave you all Options to explore in your previous Thread but you didn't do/try anything with those...
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...

many thanks for a swift response

I have tried things and nothing seems to be working to get the extracted data in proper format.

If you can have a look at what all i have tried so far.


Thank you
