    Is it possible to have imacros run an add-on in firefox? I can't figure out how to do it yet... do I need to combine imacros with another program or no?

    Since I've been working on this for hours I can +rep anyone who can lend a hand to help me out. :eek:

    Yeah it is... when you installed the program and on installation it asks you if you want to add it to firefox, checkmark it.

    maybe you ignored it, try reinstalling

    I guess what you are asking is whether it is possible to automate running another addon on firefox with imacros addon? If that is not your question then state your question clearly.

    If that is your question the answer is NO. imacros can control only the webpage dom, not outside of the webpage.

    as honeybird said, download the add ons but it has some limits. the add ons wont read the x and y commands, the proxy commands and many more.

    Yeah that's my question. How could I pair up imacros with a script/outside macros/batch file to run another unrelated add-on in firefox?

    I'm trying to make a macro that can run the "click and clean" firefox add-on by pressing the add-on's icon on the tool bar. (its a toliet paper roll icon on the far left below the back button in FF)

    not possible with imacros to click on outside of webpage. But for all practical purposes like account sign ups etc. the CLEAR command of imacros is perfect for me to clear all browser cache and cookies. I am pretty sure it would be enough for what u r trying to do. If you definitely want to 'click' on click and clean then you can do it easily with some external script like autoit or VB
