Scripting Mozilla

P: n/a
I've a personal application I would like to script, that would
bring up a particular web page (which happens to have a Flash application
on it), then every 15 minutes or so generate the equivalent of
clicking on a button (causing the application to retrieve and display
the latest info).

Anyone know of any articles or howtos on the web for writing such an
application?

the "refresh" meta tag should do this.
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="900;URL=whatever.html">

hope this helps,

In my specific case, the refresh won't do the job - a flash
application button needs to be 'pressed'.

So, is there a way via javascript to script interactions with flash
applications?
