Run a file on exit

Just a quick question as to whether the launcher for Firefox or Thunderbird can run a .bat (or any file for that matter) file on exit? Or whether anyone knows of a extension that does the same thing.

The reason i'd like to konw if this functionaliy exists is because i want it to run my EncryptonClick .bat on close, automatically. If anyone has any other suggestions to acomplish the same thing, please post.

Thanks

Try PStart

PStart can do this.

Thanks, but

i already use PStart, and konw about this function. I currelty use it to encrypt one the TB folder, but i'd like to encrypt more than one, without having to do it all on shutdown of PStart.

Currently EncryptonClick dosn't support multipul folders. Anything else ppl can think of?

EDIT: just found out that the userChrome.js file can automaitcally run scripts (see http://www.extensionsmirror.nl/index.php?showtopic=5179), however this link only descirbes 'onLoad'. Anyone with any Java scripting konwledge know how to write a script to run a file onClose?

Yes, there is.

For onLoad, there is onUnload, which does what you want to do. This is a javascript command as mentioned, and if you can somehow get the javascript for launching an exe, you'll be good. Not sure on security settings though.
