Mozilla Firefox not recognised with Ranorex v7.2.0

Post by Stub » Mon Sep 25, 2017 10:51 am

Hi Ranorex,

Ranorex v7.1.2 was happily recognising my Mozilla Firefox, but since installing Ranorex v7.2.0 it's failing and the Ranorex Technology Limitation dialog is appearing.

As suggested here I UNinstalled Ranorex v7.2.0 and reinstalled it using a freshly downloaded copy. I am running Ranorex 7.2.0+git.ffdcf8e6.

The extension is enabled. Is this the correct version? I'm seeing Ranorex Automation NG 1.0.9 updated April 5th 2017.

Ohhhh, wait, I fixed it!

When I went to Tools/Add-ons in Firefox the Firefox Automation NG extension appeared enabled. But when I happened to use the 3 horizontal bars "menu button" icon in the top-right corner there was a yellow warning line about this Ranorex extension. Clicking that gave me another option to enable the extension. THAT appears to be have been the thing I needed to do but didn't realise it.

As you can tell from my initial "Tools/Add-ons" comment I do not use this menu button. I prefer the ye olde style File/Edit/View/History/etc menu bar. So I did not know the extension wasn't enabled despite looking at it in the Extensions list. D'oh.
