Defect #




Hooking of Firefox is not possible if Firefox is already open before recording.

Close all Firefox browsers before starting recording.

Recording form submissions of HTML forms with multiple form fields with identical names can result in a modified script if the field values change. The script may send a slightly different form at replay than it sent at recording.

Use manual scripting to correct the script.


If STRING_COMPLETE is specified as 3rd parameter of the WebFormExpand function, the form is appended to the provided string (the string parameter is not cleared).

Provide an empty string as out-parameter to the WebFormExpand function.


When using Internet Explorer with the Recorder, a Security Alert dialog may be shown for every embedded object (image) on the Web site. This can be very annoying when the Web site contains a lot of embedded objects.

Open the Internet Options in the Control Panel or from the Tools -> Internet Options menu in Internet Explorer. In the Advanced tab, uncheck the option Warn about invalid site certificates, and click OK.


Certain non-default Internet Explorer configuration options can result in the Recorder not being able to record Internet Explorer traffic. Because these options can only be changed by editing registry values, such problems occur only very rarely.

Re-configure the two Internet Explorer registry settings listed below. Both registry entries must have the value "yes." Otherwise separate iexplore.exe processes won"t be created when starting Internet Explorer, and Internet Explorer will be hosted by the explorer.exe process:
1) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BrowseNewProcess\BrowseNewProcess
2) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\BrowseNewProcess\BrowseNewProcess
