    hey guys, I'm trying to make a script using Apple Script to repeat/loop keystroke down arrow while using Firefox, but as I dont use this program everyday I forgot all that I knew before and I find it easier to ask here for someone who uses daily and can make the script.

    many thanks

    obviously it doesnt work

    keystroke doesn't respond unless you're talking to System Events, since it's using the Universal Access Assistive framework. Also, downArrow is a variable, not the actual keystroke for the down arrow. Since I can't think of the right one, just use the key code.

    That said, just change your keystroke line to:

    tell application "System Events" to tell process "Firefox" to key code 125
