Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hey Monks, Is there anything similar to $mech->stack_depth(); in www::mechanize::firefox. For large automation, I am getting warnings like "No result from repl". Any help is highly appreciated. thanks Monks (for this wonderful website.)

    stack_depth will not work with WWW::Mechanize::Firefox?

      stack_depth will not work with WWW::Mechanize::Firefox?

      Firefox doesn't have a stack_depth option, and WWW::Mechanize::Firefox simply lets firefox keep the history

      See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/DOM/Manipulating_the_browser_history

      You could try ->eval in some javascript emulating the feature of stack_depth,

      But , since I don't write spiders, I find that going ->back works for me
