Here is an extension which should fix the timeout issues (not the tab-id related debug messages). It would be great if you could give it a try.

We plan to release it later this week with Ranorex 8.1.1, which should also get rid of most "tab-id" debug messages.

Hello Michel,
I got the same error of "LineageGlueRule" when runing a record of my testcase on ranorex 8.1 :
"LineageGlueRule 'We_child_elements' caused InvalidCastException on Execute. "
I am working on an application web-based (Browser : Internet Explorer) on Windows 8.1
I guess the extention that you provided in this comment is for FF Browser.
Is there an extension for IE browser to solve this problem because it occurs permanently on my testsuites and it is really slowing it down ?

Ranorex 8.1 is too old and no longer supported. Please try to reproduce your problem with most recent 8.3.3 or 9.0 (I would suggest to stick with 8.3.3 until 9.0.1 release). Most recent Ranorex browser plugins, could be installed with Ranorex instrumentation wizard, which is a part of Ranorex installation.

I'm getting these LineageGlueRule errors. I am using Ranorex 9.1 and am running the automation on Chrome. I'm testing a web app and the error occurs after the website loads and then it is supposed to find the Username field to go ahead and login. It doesn't find the username object and instead shows "lineagegluerule chrome web child elements caused ranorex exception on execute..." The rest of the test does not run.
