Is there a tool/scripting language that would permit me to run a script in firefox? It is for page testing -- Ideally I could release a version, and it would simulate the user by waiting, clicking, inputting content, and also had some ability to do logging/email of results.

I know I could use auto-it, but I would like to use something specific to Firefox.

its called Automated Web Testing, and as I am a C# developer, I use Watin. You may find Selenium interesting too.

This Stackoverflow post may help you getting a clear idea.

I found greaseMonkey -- I should have known that!

There is the iMacros add-on for Firefox. Not sure if it's exactly what you need, but it allows you to record a series of actions and play them back in an automated fashion.

Selenium is better for automate . It has record and playback option.
