Moz­Repl is a Firefox ex­tens­ion that al­lows you to open a con­nec­tion to a runn­ing Firefox sess­ion and gain ac­cess to a JavaScript in­terpret­er con­text that can ac­cess all as­pects of the Firefox run­time. It lets you pro­gram Firefox (and other Mozilla-based applica­tions) from the in­side. This talk will in­troduce you to Moz­Repl and its Perl in­ter­face on CPAN, along with other CPAN modules avail­able for it.
