Selenium--Firefox macro recorder/playback

Now I want to put in a good word for the Firefox Selenium extension. This thing lets you record and playback sequences of actions in Firefox. I just used it to upload 10 images to a webapp for testing; that could just as easily have been 100 or 1000, unattended.

I'm sure I'll be finding ways to use it not just for testing but for other boilerplate activity.

Yes, I agree. It is nice.

After playing around with Selenium I would like to automate some browsing with a click. Is there a way to convert Selenium IDE actions to clickable macros?

How were you able to automate these tasks with Selenium?

Hi badboyz--alas I am not sure if it is possible to assign macros to clickable actions. It may very well be possible--just haven't dug into it very deeply.

I just recorded some Selenium actions, then copy-and-pasted them a bunch of times, then pressed Play.
