I was doing something very similar on my windows XP machine a year ago
(with python 2.4) and used Mayukh Bose's Internet Explorer controller
(see for details/
download).  It worked very nicely for my needs and was rather
intuitive (generally much easier and required fewer brain cells than
using urllib) ... here's some clips from the project:

        # this window will be for our initial data pull-in
        ie = IEController()
        strAllText = ie.GetDocumentText() # gets all html source code
from current page.

I wish someone could make a similar one for Firefox.
