Open Browser fails to open Firefox with URL

Post by KaiF » Thu Aug 25, 2022 7:25 am

Hello,

I have the following problem. I call the action 'Open browser' for a crossbrowser test and give a list of two browsers as data source (Edge, Firefox) and a URL.

When I start the test, the first loop works very well with Edge. The second loop calls Firefox, but it doesn't get the URL there, so the test fails. Firefox is then in a strange state. Firefox is not yet fully loaded and cannot be used.

Does anyone know this problem? Can someone help me?

By the way, the behavior does not occur when a Firefox instance is already open.

Environment:
Windows 10
Ranorex 10.2.4 (64bit) C#
Firefox 103.0.2 (64bit)

Hi,

A couple of things to consider:
- Re-instrument FF via the Ranorex wizard to see if that fixes the opening delay
- Have 2 steps (run application -> open browser) with delay in-between
