Subject: [jawsscripts] IE and Firefox

Good afternoon,

I prefer using IE 7 for general web-browsing, but sometimes there are pages
that I'd like to view in Firefox.  I have created the following script in
the Internet Explorer scripts to allow me to open the current Internet
Explorer page in Firefox.  I used Control + Alt + F as the keystroke.
Comments welcome.

Script gotoFirefox ()


Object oDoc,

string sExecute

Let oDoc = IEGetCurrentDocument ()

; Gets the url of the current page

Let sExecute = oDoc.url

; Creates the statement to execute.

Let sExecute = "firefox " + sExecute

SayMessage (OT_JAWS_MESSAGE, "Opening page in Firefox.")

Run (sExecute)
