Batch commands for imacros for mac

Post by htahir1 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 6:35 pm

I have iMacros for Firefox for my Macbook pro, and i'm using a macro that auto-likes some pictures, waits an hour, and then starts the whole process again.

The problem is, the script I wrote gets slowed down a lot after a few hours. I've looked into it and I think the solution to my problem is using command line commands to restart Firefox after every run, so that the memory clears out. However, i'm a new Mac user, and I don't know the command line batch commands.

From the iMacros wiki, I see that the lines would be something like this:

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/open /Applications/ "imacros://run/?m=mymacro.iim"
Can anyone tell me the whole command line command for starting Firefox, running the macros, closing firefox, waiting an hour, and then repeating?

iMacros version: VERSION BUILD=8300326 RECORDER=FX (The Firefox plugin)
Using MacBook Pro
