Web Testing Issue

Post by sunny1180 » Fri Mar 02, 2018 6:42 pm

Hi Expert again,

I am trying to perform some testing through the web browser. I have IE, Chrome and Firefox installed, I have no issue with IE and Firefox, but could not figure out what is the issue with Chrome. Just to simplify, I tried to open the Ranorex web page using the Open Browser action, when opening with Chrome, it opened up the web browser, but not the web page. It shows an "unhappy face" with Untitled on top, clicking on the Ranorex extension, it said the extension has crashed (see attached picture).

I tried to uninstalled the extension and Chrome, then re-installed everything back, the end result is the same. Anyone has come across the same issue here?

Thanks in advance!!!

hey sunny1180,

I haven't seen this before, but maybe you can find the reason if you take a look at the backgorund.html of the extension and see if you can find an error in the console.

Also, please verify if you are using the latest automation extension version (1.0.11)

Hi, I confirmed that I have 1.0.11 installed.

When I looked at the background.html, I have the following capture, where should I start debugging the issue?

Hi,
Please take a look at the "Console" tab in this HTML and see if there are any errors which would help identifying the problem.

I am seeing this same issue when starting Chrome. I have version 1.2.9 of the extensions installed and running Ranorex version 9.3.2. Has anyone found a fix for this. If I try and open another tab I get the same issue in every tab. I am starting the browser using: Host.Current.OpenBrowser(vURL, "chrome", "", false, true, true, false, false, true); vURL is variable holding the URL to go to.

Hi,

I’m afraid, Ranorex 9.3.2 is quite old and no longer supported. Please update it with most recent 9.5.2 (full uninstall and reinstall) and try to reproduce the issue.

I have upgraded Ranorex to version 10.1 and I am still seeing this issue. If I add the startup option of --no-sandbox then it works. Any Ideas?
