I put Task::Mechanistic::Firefox together to help with situations such as the one that you are experiencing. Give it a try.

    What advantage does this bring over a plain cpan WWW::Mechanize::Firefox (or cpanm WWW::Mechanize::Firefox or cpanp WWW::Mechanize::Firefox)?

    As far as I'm aware, WWW::Mechanize::Firefox and all its prerequisites completely specify their respective prerequisites, so there is no need to pull them together in another overarching module.

      Problem solved---module will be deleted.

    Can you explain to me why this makes more sense than a 'normal' install? My concerns are that it's another thing that needs to be maintained to keep in step with WWW::Mechanize::Firefox (should it's prerequisites change), an installation via cpan/cpanp will install the module and it's prerequisites anyway, using another module to do this seems to have no benifit to me.

    Secondly it doesn't inform the user about the configuration steps required as detailed in WWW::Mechanize::Firefox::Troubleshooting and WWW::Mechanize::Firefox::Installation.
