I’m facing troubles automating with Firefox, since I can’t open a browser. As a beginning, I did searched through the following topics :
But it did not help, so I’m posting my own problem in details
I use an “Open Browser” activity, set with “Firefox”, “New session” parameters, and it fails.
I also tried with “Private” parameter, to no avail.
I did install the UiPath extension, through the Setup Extension menu, and it worked fine (UiPath is present in the Mozilla extension tab).
Here is the error I get :
Launching_Firefox has thrown an exception
Message: Cannot communicate with the browser, please check the UiPath extension.
Source: Open browser
Exception Type: BrowserOperationException

Open a new Firefox tab and keep going with the automation
