Prototype: Puppeteer for Firefox

Use Puppeteer's API with Firefox

⚠️ BEWARE: Experimental. Just for preview. Installation and usage will change.

This project is a feasibility prototype to guide the work of implementing Puppeteer endpoints into Firefox's code base. Mozilla's bug 1545057 tracks the initial milestone, which will be based on a CDP-based remote protocol.

Getting Started


To try out Puppeteer with Firefox in your project, run:

npm i puppeteer-firefox
# or "yarn add puppeteer-firefox"

Note: When you install puppeteer-firefox, it downloads a custom-built Firefox (Firefox/63.0.4) that is guaranteed to work with the API.


Example - navigating to and saving a screenshot as example.png:

Save file as example.js

const pptrFirefox = require('puppeteer-firefox');

(async () => {
  const browser = await pptrFirefox.launch();
  const page = await browser.newPage();
  await page.goto('');
  await page.screenshot({path: 'example.png'});
  await browser.close();

Execute script on the command line

node example.js

Special thanks to Amine Bouhlali who volunteered the puppeteer-firefox NPM package.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
