Provide Sample Perl WWW::Mechanize::Firefox code

Provide a resource for those who are (or want to be) heavy PACER downloaders via Perl scripting and Firefox.

Now is a particularly opportune time, since PACER effectively requires script users to use Firefox to get past the new (as of 2014) login page.

If you make it easy for heavy/script users (like me) to login using Firefox, and to keep using Mechanize::Firefox to do their searching and downloading, then all that data will be cloned to you.

Today, I download thousands of case records and hundreds of summary pages every day, but it is entirely in Perl ans so never shared with RECAP. If you make it easy to rewrite the Pacer Case Lookup (https://pcl.uscourts.gov/search) using Firefox, a lot of data can be shared.
