Re: Login macro does not work with DOM explorer

The DOM Explorer was added to WebInspect when we were learning how to manage DOM items.  since most of its learning/capabilities are now part of WebInspect, the DOM Explorer is outdated if not obsolete.

Have you tried simply recording a Login Macro with the Login Macro Recorder?  Be sure to use the "Firefox Rendering engine", as that is the Event-based recorder.  The older "IE-based Rendering Engine" is just a primitive session-based recorder.


Additionally, with WebInspect 19.10, we added the ability to "upgrade" the Gecko browser used within the Login Macro Recorder to version 59, rather than the current version 30.  This only appears if you modify your Application Settings to switch to Gecko 59, and only if you launch the Login Macro Recorder within the Basic Scan Wizard.  This is a tech preview of what will be more widespread integration of Gecko 50 over 30 in the upcoming WebInspect release.
