( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am using WWW::Mechanize::Firefox and want to follow a link on a page that uses javascript. I have tried using the follow_link function, Firefox shows the linked page but the Perl code hangs.

$mech->follow_link( n => 3 );

If I add synchronize => 0 then it continues but the html in $mech->contents is not updated.

$mech->follow_link( n => 3, synchronize => 0 );

I have also tried using the click call with the following code but I get the error message "Can't locate object method "__click" via package "WWW::Mechanize::Link"..."

my @links = $mech->links(); $mech->click({dom => $links[3]});

And with the following code the error message is "Can't locate object method "click" via package "WWW::Mechanize::Link"..."

my @links = $mech->links(); $links[3]->click();

Any help with the correct method to use would be very much appreciated.
