What are you specifically aiming for? – Ivo Flipse Sep 30 '09 at 11:23

Have a look at this question on SO: Firefox API Access from my program

By Matthew Lock:

Using the MozRepl Firefox extension you can read the current Firefox url (among other things) from telnet. You could then use AutoHotkey to access telnet or via your own program and get the current url.

It seems you can also access the Firefox url via DDE

If it doesn't answer your question I suggest trying to ask the question over at SO and be more specific about what you want to do, so they can help you more effective.
