Starting with extensions..
Hello all, Newbie needs some help...
I'm trying to write my first Firefox extension and I'd need some
guidelines here, I've been reading tutorials and googling around but
I'm a bit confused with all this stuff (haven't found a really
"Hello World" extension is up and running.
Here's what I'm trying to do:
- when extension is started it opens a new tab (this one is already
- then it should log in to a site and read some HTML from there (I
quess XMLHttpRequest takes place here)
- output modified page to newly opened tab
The questions are:
Am I going to run into difficulties when trying to retrieve data from
a site requiring username/password with XMLHttpRequest?
output that content into a new tab?
Shed some light please. Also links to good examples and tutorials
would be highly appreciated.
