Search in Firefox for a Word List Hosted in Numbers – One at a Time – Pausing Between Iterations

I need to search in online magazine for about 30 words, I want to be able to automate it so that

Search for word1 PAUSE
HIT KEYSTROKE Search for word2 PAUSE
HIT KEYSTROKE Search for word3 PAUSE


Can some one help me with this?

I'm sure there's a more elegant way to do it, but this worked for me.

Hey Elroy,

What web browser?

Is the magazine available for testing?

As you can see from @Ben_Mattison's post the pause part is pretty easy.


here is a magazine you can use for testing.

I have a set of keywords that I want to look for. @Ben_Mattison way if good but if there is another way, It would be good.

I would like to have to then keyowrds saved in a excel sheet and pick the words from there.

Hey Elroy,

Thanks for the test mag, but more info is needed:

A) You didn't say what web browser.

B) Please provide a zipped Excel worksheet example.
       - Drag it to the forum editor, and it will be uploaded.


Thanks Chris.

I am using Firefox.

Hey Elroy,

Still working on this problem?


Hi, yes,

I will like a solution for this problem.

Please met me know if you can find one.

Hey Elroy,

This is nothing fancy, but I think it'll get the job done.

Carefully read the NOTES section of the Macro Notes Comment action at the top.

Remember – macros are installed in a disabled state, and this may mean the macro is disabled OR the macro group is disabled OR both.

  • Change the Hotkey trigger as needed.

Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

I need it to go into firefox or preview

Huh? The macro already works in Firefox.

What exactly do you mean?


I am not able to get it to work, any way, It is fine thank you

Did you make sure both the macro and the macro group it's in are enabled?

(Keyboard Maestro macros import disabled by default for safety.)

What version of macOS are you using?

Please provide a new spreadsheet and URL for a magazine (the one above no longer works).
