Because it's not a regular button. It's not a form that you can submit.
urls for you. If you don't see any other requests in firefox while you
suppose you could try to figure out what that code is doing.
How often do you download these files? This seems like a lot of work
for something that generally is done quite rarely.
When I next get time, I am going to try Robbie's suggestion.
If that does not work, I will try some other trace utilities
and maybe go to the end point and see what resolves.
This is part of a program that goes to the Internet and
checks ab out 50 programs I have to support at
customer sites and looks for updates. If it finds one, it
downloads it. Then I rsync them all to a flash drive.
I run my update checker once a day. I do not have
the time or energy to do them all manually.
Hmmmm. I wonder what the heck Firefox is sending when it presses
the button. If worse comes to worse: WIRESHARK!
