    You'll have to explore the firefox API or maybe write a firefox addon to communicate with your software.

    You can always screen-scrape it - but this is not a desired solution.

    What is your ultimate goal - perhaps there is another approach someone could suggest if we knew what you were doing with the data?

    I'm creating a parental control software and it's part of identifying if the site is inappropriate for the child. My goal is to identify if that url from firefox is inappropriate.
