Can Firefox browser be used to datascrape via Excel VBA?

Now that Microsoft has sunsetted IE, datascraping is not straight forward. I like firefox browser and would like to use it to datascrape from websites into Excel via VBA. Does Selenium work? Any other solutions?

Firefox does not run ActiveX controls (COM objects).

Since you write VBA, you can run your code from inside Excel and it will use the IE plumbing.
