1) I want to Close all mozilla firefox windows running , for that to happen as i know there is two ways
a) to use link label
b) findwindow

Link Label finds the mozilla browser but with the found browser i can get the url of the browser but i cannot get the title so i will not be able to get the hwnd value using findwindow function
because findwindow function needs title of the page not the url .

If i try using just findwindow i can just find window which matches the exact page title like ,"Mozilla Firefox Start Page - Mozilla Firefox"
but the problem is for each page the title of the page changes so i can never get the hwnd value .

So Please suggest me some method to find hwnd value of mozilla browser
or way to find hwnd value of mozilla application

Check process id of all mozilla.exe running and kill them.

I was thinking along these lines. Play around a bit. Got it from another site. It worked fine in my testing. -
