in thread Reading a cookie from an active browser session

Ok I did the force install. Now I tried the following code:
use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; $ENV{MOZREPL} = "localhost:8888"; # using a non-standard port since 4 +242 is used by ncui use HTTP::Cookies::MozRepl; my $repl = MozRepl::RemoteObject->install_bridge(); my $document = $repl->expr('document'); print $document->{title};

This prints out the correct title: Junos Pulse Secure Access Service - Home - Mozilla Firefox

So I added:

my $cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::MozRepl->new( repl => $repl ); my @cookies = $cookie_jar->extract_cookies(); print Dumper \@cookies;

Now it just hangs there, it doesn't even print the title.

Any ideas what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

    Maybe you just have a lot of cookies? HTTP::Cookies::MozRepl is slow.

    You could switch on the logging for your MozRepl client to see whether it is hanging or still doing something.

      In the firefox scratchpad when I do alert(document.cookie) there are only a handful of cookies (like 7 or so). So I don't think it is too many cookies.

      The problem looks like mozrepl. When I telnet to it, and do alert(document.cookie) the alert says undef. I have a sinking feeling I'm being hit by that security feature that prohibits javascript from being run in the address bar and other places.

      Trying now to figure out how to turn on logging.

        So the problem was you have to pass Mozrepl something like:


        I wish thiss MozRepl thing was better documented.
