    I have about a gagillion html files that I need to open, run a firefox plugin action and close. At this rate, it's going to take a really long time. I'm wondering if there's a way to automate the action so it performs it on every file in a specified folder?

    Any ideas?

    You can probably do it with Applescript. I don't think Automater would be able to hook into the Firefox plugin. I can't particularly help you with Applescript but it should be able to get the job done.

    It would probably have to be a combination of Automator and an Applescript, I know nothing about Applescript, but I would think there is a way ...
