Can Firefox be programmed to do a screen capture outside the window area of Firefox itself. For instance a screen capture of Notepad. I need this capability for my web app.

I can write an application that can run from the Systems Tray if needed. If I have to do this can a Firefox button event cause my app to run.

Why don't you write a small helper app that will serve screen captures over HTTP? If you do that, your HTML app should be able to access the dynamic screen capture the same way it accesses any other picture source.
