RUN Firefox engine in silent or tray mode?

Post by ascentia » Fri Feb 23, 2007 6:08 pm

I could use this tool if I could run the ff engine in silent mode?

Is This possible?

I tried

s = m_app.iimInit("-fx -silent", True, "", "", "", 60)

but this didn't work

Thanks for your help

You can send Firefox manually to the system tray using the "MinimizeToTray" extension available at

The automatic tray and silent mode via iimInit is only supported by the iMacros Browser (PRO and Scripting Edition).
