Hidden mode for firefox is not working

I wanna scrape some data from a website in background, so I select the hidden mode in Open browser activity with Firefox and chrome, but the browser window is always visible. IE seems to be working, but doesnt render the webpage i need properly, so using IE is out of possiblities.

Am I missing something here? or Hidden mode is only for IE?

Same problem. Does anyone know a solution?

Hi @Aravindh_Stanley @pduffy

Apparently neither Firefox nor Chrome support Hidden mode. We will update our documentation accordingly.

These options will work for:

  1. IE in non-WebDriver mode
  2. Firefox & Cheme in WebDriver mode

You can read more about the Webdriver Protocol:


Thanks @loginerror, I found out since. Actually, even IE in hidden mode doesn’t work in all cases, I guess this mode is still a work in progress.

Activate the “Protected mode” of IE and it should work every time.

Have you tried this or is it a guess?

I wouldn’t post if it’s a guess. I had the same issue and fixed it when I enabled protected mode.
