How can I open multiple firefox browsers at the same time ? Every firefox is a different profile.

This should be possible, but it's not something I have attempted to do. The basic concept would follow these steps --

  1. Launch multiple Geckodriver instances. Each one needs it's own port number (set with _WD_Option / DriverParams before calling _WD_Startup)
  2. Switch between Geckodriver instances by changing the port number with _WD_Option / Port.
  3. Issue the Webdriver command(s) to communicate with the currently active instance of Geckodriver
  4. Return to Step 2 as needed

Give it a go and let us know the results. :)

@PaulC I think @Danp2 mean that any contribution to this UDF are welcomed. So you should take it in your hands, develop desired function, and share your results to community. Of course you can get help in your work but you must get involved in a development process.

FTFY. B)

I was looking into this just now. It seems that I hadn't added the screenshot functionality to _WD_ElementAction, so expect that modification to be added ASAP.

Next step would be to decide the correct way to implement the new functionality --

  • One vs multiple functions
  • Supported output types (base64, raw (decoded base64), file, etc)
  • Etc

Thanks for lesson.
I must ask my teacher about my wording/vocabulary mistakes here .... in the end I signed up for individual lessons, with a teacher in the "direct english" system.

@Danp2 I found another change in the behaviour of chromedriver after the latest update. I have 2 computers: one desktop connected to router by cable, which contains all the webdriver programs in a shared folder, and a notebook connected to the router by wifi. In the past my notebook could run webdriver programs on the desktop. Now the notebook cannot run them. It seems that the notebook cannot create a webdriver session. The debug message says "Only local connections are allowed." When I connect the notebook to the router with hard cable, the programs run OK. Please let me know if there is a solution.

Thanks and regards,

CY Cho

@CYCho Does this message appear in Scite? FWIW, I see this same message in the Chromedriver console.

This sounds more like a network configuration issue than a problem with the CD. I assume you are using v2.45 of CD. You could test this scenario with that version and v2.44 to see if one works and the other doesn't.

@Danp2 I tested this in both CD 2.44 and 2.45. The CD console says:

Only local connections are allowed.

The SciTE console shows:

This is normal behavior

Have you tried looking in the chrome.log file for additional details?

@CYCho My guess is that it's due to some kind of rights issue. Unfortunately, I don't know how to be of further assistance. Suggest that you troubleshoot on your end to try to identify the cause --

  • Does it work if you run everything local on the laptop?
  • Where is the Chrome application installed?
  • Are you able to run the routines in wd_demo.au3?
  • Etc

@Danp2 The chromedriver.exe are installed in both computers, but au3 files are only in the shared folder of desktop. The notebook runs all local au3 files OK. It even runs all au3 files in the desktop if it is connected to router by cable. The problem happens when the notebook is on wifi, even though it still has access to the files in the desktop.

I changed my codes so that local chromedriver.exe is used when the notebook creates a webdriver session and the problem was solved. Still unresolved is why the notebook can run a program in the desktop when connected by cable and cannot run the same program when connected by wifi in the same local network.

Thank you for your hint.
