UFT 14.50 is very slow with Firefox ESR 52

Hi.

We have recently upgraded from UFT 12.02 to 14.50 so that we can use it with our companies latest Firefox ESR 52.3 Release instead of Firefox 33, but we are finding that UFT is now running much slower - up to 4 times slower in fact.

To test this, we wrote a basic script that changed 3 fields on a webpage (1 WebEdit and 2 WebList fields), which then looped around changing them all 10 times.

On UFT v12.02 with FF33, it took an average of 0.82 seconds to do this.

On UFT v14.50 with FF52, it took an average of 3.43 seconds.

We had a similar issue when looking at v12.54 and v14.01 and the speed was improved by using the AgentLegacy.xpi instead of the AgentCfx.xpi, but this isn't an option this time as the legacy agent isn't compatible with the newer version of Firefox.

Has anyone else had this or a similar issue and if so, did you manage to resolve it?

Thank you

As far as I know, since the new extension for FF is using JS, so it should be slower than legacy. But from your case, I think it's too much slower than expected. It's better to open a case for this.

There could be possibility that object property get different due to such big gap over UFT extension and Firefox version.

Do you create the test on FF33 and copy to FF52 machine? Would you try create new case on FF52 or check if there's any smart identification used in FF52 environment?

Thanks Jerry2. We thought that as well and have raised a service request with Micro Focus to investigate.

EvanC, we created the script and objects from scratch on the new version, but thanks for your suggestion anyway. Micro Focus are now investigating.
