Selenium IDE 'fireEvent' Command

One of the commands that I have found most helpful in running IDE scripts is the fireEvent(AndWait) command. This command can run any event that a specific object is supposed to do. For example, if you need your cursor to hover over something:

This screenshot actually has quite a few fireEvent commands, but we will just look at the mouseover. So the element here css=span.submenu-trigger has an event attached to that if you mouseover it triggers something. So by firing the event mouseover it fires that event.
Any event that is associated with the target, or element, you can fire with the fireEvent command.

I use this command mostly because of the nature of the website that I test, the normal commands like click don’t work.
