firefox does not seem to have an Applescript dictionary. Checked with 0.8
release build.
Reference bug 202340 for an explanation/possible fix.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run fireFox
2. attempt to open dictionary with script editor
3.
confirmed.

Ever confirmed: true
Maybe I am jumping the gun a bit here, as a simple script does not even work
when run against fireFox. A script which works against mozilla (And it compiles
as shown):

tell application "Firefox"
	activate
	get URL "www.grope.com"
end tell

So does fireFox not even have scripting capability?
Chris's simple script above works fine for me running OX10.3.8

However, Firefox/Mozilla applescript library lacks a "do javascript" command, which is very important. I 
have heard that more applescript commands existed in prior versions. Where are they now?

Also, why are the "SpyGlass" commands in the current applescript dictionary?
