What exactly do you want to do?
It might be easier to do it with Java Script.

Please type complete words, and try to avoid unnecessary abbreviations and loose phonetical spelling (thus != does)

There are some techniques here:
http://www.faqts.com/knowledge_base/.../31646/fid/124

... but it looks like they may be Microsoft specific. The first technique might work more widely (changing document.location.href), though that replaces the current document entirely as I understand it, which may not be what you want.

HTH,

If the Mozilla platform is your target, rather than a general browser running JavaScript, you can certainly run external programs by calling into the supporting Mozilla framework from JavaScript.

I don't know precisely how to do this (despite having read the book!), but it would help you focus your search. I'd start by looking at one of the Thunderbird or Firefox plugins that you know must launch an external program (like Enigmail, the GPG email plugin).

Cheers,
-nick
