Open browser opens incorrect Firefox

Post by csmirl3 » Thu Nov 30, 2017 2:09 pm

I have Firefox v.57 with Ranorex add ons installed. My machine also has Firefox Developer edition which I use for analyzing bugs and performance.
When I use the Open Browser function Ranorex opens Firefox Developer which doesn't have the Ranorex Add On (tried unsuccessfully to install).
Do I have to uninstall Developer Edition to make it work? OR How can I specify the version of Firefox to open?

OpenBrowser supports only one browser, typically the last one installed in the system. We discussed a similar problem here... ... 11576.html

A solution of your problem could be uninstalling both browsers, then install dev version and after that normal version. Or you can edit windows registry (find the path to dev version and replace it with path to main version).
