in thread fetching and storing data from web.

I try to make using WWW::Mechanize::Firefox easy. Please tell me what you found unusable about the WWW::Mechanize::Firefox documentation, and especially WWW::Mechabize::Firefox::Examples and WWW::Mechanize::Firefox::Troubleshooting. They get distributed with the module itself. Searching for www::mechanize::firefox examples also returns that document on CPAN as the first hit to me, so if you tell me what search engine you used, or why you disregarded that result, I can use that information to improve the documentation.

    It took me two hours to build the module on Win32. I got so frustrated that I've just put the name of the module to the search engine in the hope to get something working. If I do a proper search the first hit is the examples page you mentioned so no problem there.

    By the way grats for your module: it is really business like. Automatically looking up the form suitable for the given fields is really handy. I know what I mean: I parse forms manually from web pages and when the structure of the page changes ( form 5 suddenly becomes form 4 ) the whole application fails.
