How To Use Firefox For Web Automation With Imacro by bedfordng(m): 10:41am On Mar 28, 2019
How to Use Firefox For Web Automation with Imacro. lots of internet users have been using mozila firefox for years without knowing that they can use this same browser for web automation. this is made possible with a firefox extension called Imacro. with this, you can carry out some simple manual task by automating the process to free yourself of the stress.below is how to get this started.

Step 1: Download firefox Portable Version 55. don't worry, i will add download link for it which include both Firefox and Imacro.

the reason for download old version and portable is because we don't intend updating the firefox and most of us already have updated firefox browser which requires new version of imacro extension.

you may say why not use new version then. the problem with new version of imacro is that it comes with lots of restrictions which would force you to purchase their pro version. we can't afford to buy such for $99 to $995.00 per licence. so the old version is okay for what we intend to use it for.

so for this reason, i have uploaded old portable version of firefox and also imacro extension is already installed on it. this way, you won't start searching all over the net for old imacro web extension because latest firefox no longer support old version

Step 2: Extract the zip file.


Step 3: inside it, you will see the portable firefox and also a folder called Imacro.

Step 4: copy the folder called Imacro and paste it in your document root folder. this means it must be inside your document folder.this way, it enables imacro to work.

Step 5: launch the portable firefox browser. then scroll to the top right, you will see an icon for imacro. click on it. it will display errror. don't worry, we will fix that in step 6.

Step 6: click on imacro Settings=>Paths Option. there you will see the paths folder options. all you need to do is to select the right paths folders. remember in step 4 where we copied the imacros folder to document.

now you will need to start locating the right source folders by clicking the Search icon close to the folder paths.just follow the steps below

the first folder is Macros. now click the search and browse to the folder in your document folder which should be Imacros=>Macros and then click select once inside there.


second one is Datasources, now click on search and browse to the folder in your document folder which should be Imacros=>Datasources and click on select once inside there

third one is Downloads, now click on search and browse to the folder in your document folder which should be Imacros=>Downloads and click on Select once inside there

once done, you should click on the Apply button to save the changes.


now you are done configuring Imacro. the imacro window should now appear at the left side bar of firefox. you are now ready to use imacro.

download portable firefox via link attached. also a video tutorial is added in the file . the download link is in text file which i have attached here below because of nairaland bot
