in reply to can't get www::mechanize::firefox to work

It works for me. Try installing Task::Mechanistic::Firefox. There are loads of dependencies that need to be installed before you install Mechanize.

    I installed www::mechanize::firefox through CPAN. Isn't it supposed to handle all dependencies automatically?

      CPAN does exactly what it is told to do. The authors of the dependencies are supposed to to tell it to install prerequisites: however, they don't always do that, so some dependencies end up in the wind, causing the problems that you are encountering.
