Just a short reply, as I can't reply in longer detail.

I recommend using the ->click method. Also have a look at the Examples, Cookbook and Troubleshooting documents in WWW::Mechanize::Firefox.

    Thanks Corion, but it failed.

    I am not sure whether its a correct way but I tried like this, $mech->click({xpath => '//li@class="next"', synchronize=>0, }); , and I am getting like "No elements found for '//li@class="next"'"

    Can you pls suggest a way. Thanks in advance.

      I am getting like "No elements found found

      When that happens, dump the innerHTML of body and verify the lack of such an element

      print $body =~ m{(<li.*?class="next".*?</li>)};

      Using firebug, if I turn off javascript, there is no search results, no next button

      But if I turn on javascript,  $x('//li[@class="next"]'); returns two nodes

      /html/body/form/div[2]/div[2]/div[2]/div/table/tbody/tr/td[2]/div/tabl +e/tbody/tr[2]/td/span/div/ul/li[5] /html/body/form/div[2]/div[2]/div[2]/div/table/tbody/tr/td[2]/div/tabl +e/tbody/tr[25]/td/span/div/ul/li[5]

      Also, maybe the search results are still loading

        Thanks, Its working now. Site was loading. :)

    Thanks for your valuable time. :)
