Can't see domain objects in MS Edge

Post by KaiF » Tue Jul 05, 2022 9:52 am

I want to automate a web application in various browsers. I used the Ranorex Instrumentation Wizard to activate the browsers Chromium, Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.
Ranorex can see the domain objects if I use Google Chrome. But Ranorex can not see the domain objects while using MS Edge. The Ranorex extension is enabled in MS Edge.
Where is my error? What is still to be done?

MS Windows 10 Enterprise Version 10.0.19042 Build 19042
Ranorex 10.2.2
MS Edge 103.1264.44 (chromium based)

I hope you can help me ..

The most probable reason of this issue is, that the Edge and Chrome browsers are running at the same time! Please make sure there is running only one browser. Additionally, make sure both Chrome and Edge have unchecked option "Continue running on background", which is by default ON! For more details, see this: ... tml#p71155
