Cannot "Instrument" FireFox Ranorex V8.0.1

Post by wvonb » Wed Feb 14, 2018 3:38 pm

I attempted to instrument FireFox using the "Instrument Wizard. in 8.0.1 but was unable to do so since the "Mozilla FireFox" radio button is disabled. This could be the issue we are experiencing regarding object recognition.

Hi wvonb,

Based on your description I am assuming you are using FireFox ESR and not the standard FireFox install (please correct me if I am wrong), which is probably why this option is disabled in the instrumentation wizard. Please try to manually add the FireFox plugin to your browser by performing the following steps:
  • [1] Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Ranorex 8.0\Ranorex Firefox Extension <-- Default location
    [2] Manually drap and drop the [email protected] to your FireFox window
    [3] FireFox should then prompt you to install the addon
I hope this helps!
