Is there any alternative way to automate using old browser version?

We have task to automate process in Oracle ERP.
As oracle technical team , this is running on old browser versions that support java.
Currently they suggest best suitable version is of firefox is 38.0.1.
But UIPath browser addon does not support for this version.
I have tested chrome and IE also, but no luck.

Is there a way to solve this compatibility issue?

Hi @Roshan.Manchanayake ,

Firefox 52 (Directory Listing: /pub/firefox/releases/52.0/win32/en-US/) is the latest one to support Java plugin in browser, and also the lowest version that our extension supports :slight_smile: . Please use one of the lastest UiAutomation activities package, since there were some issues recently about interaction with the browser while the extension is turned on. However, interacting with a Java applet in browser does not require the Firefox extension to be installed.

IE, on almost every version, should support Java applets. However, with the end of its life, Microsoft designed something called IE Mode for Edge (What is Internet Explorer mode? | Microsoft Docs) , where you can access pages using the IE engine. There are 2 ways of using that, in the same window as the Edge container, or in a pop-up IE window. The second option works at this moment with Java applets, and the first one is due to be resolved.
