I've ben trying to figure this one out for days now and so I'd thought to give it a shoot here to see whether anybody can give me any advice or inspiration.

Basically what I am trying to do is command a click of a bottom for a certain set time.

for example:

On the google main search engine page. Once ive typed in a search for "skateboards". I would then like to command the "search" bottom to clicked at 10 pm at night thus executing the search for "skateboards" going into the next page with all the search results.

I was wondering if it would be possible to right a Java command that could be run in the Mozilla Fire Fox Scratch pad tool. ( Which is found under Tools --> Web Developer.)

Please let me know of anything. It would be very grateful.

Not possible to automate a button click across domains for security reasons. Be aware that Java and Javascript are entirely different programming languages, in spite of the confusingly similar names. Rather like Austria and Australia!
