    Hello,

    In the UNIX world, a "wrapper" is a software/script that watches a process and make sure it is always running/operational.

    I need something like that for Firefox. If it hangs I want it to restart itself and sort itself out.

    And maybe a way to alert you is something goes wrong... process monitoring I guess I would call it.

    For automation you definitely need tips to pull this off, cheers.

    If Firefox dies, just press ctrl+shift+esc to bring up the windows task manager. You can select Firefox and then click on `end task' option.

    the term wrapper(in computer's world) is most used in programming, like. writing wrapper functions for already existing functions.
    google for "selenium server". i think there are bindings for almost all popular programming languages.
