Is the idea of using Mozilla technologies in the background to retrieve web data a possibility? I mean how sometimes programs run in background and you don’t know they are interaction with the operating system. What would you have to understand to start looking at this? Could it be XPCOM? Thanks

What do you mean by "in the background." If you want to incorporate the plumbing of Firefox into an application that has your interface, I think you could use XULRunner for that.
