"Text Exists"-Activity is not working in FireFox 60

i’m using FireFox 60.0.2 (extension is installed).

All activities i’ve used so far are working fine, but i can’t get the “Text Exists”-activity working. I don’t think it is a problem with my page or my robot-script, because it also didn’t work on any other page i tried.

Here someone suggested to use IE. I tried it and it immediatly worked.

So, is this a known bug? Will it get fixed?

Can you share a screenshot or selector what you are using

I’ve attached a simple demo:
It opens google and checks if there is a button with the text “Search”.

It works as expected with IE, but not with FireFox 60.0.2

It worked flawlessly on my machine, please indicate on screen and get a new selector, something like this may be


Same here, no matter what which I selector I indicate on. It doesn’t find the element.
Also using free community version on latest update with browser Add-On.

Try this

If you want to detect a colorful text that will not work, you can also use Element Exists or Image exists rather.
