iMacros incompatible with Firefox18

Post by nevyn » Fri Jan 11, 2013 12:02 am

Hi
Just updated to Firefox 18

Now my image saving script crashes with error code:
NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS: Not enough arguments [nsIWebBrowserPersist.saveURI], line: 12 (Error code: -1001)


Script is failing on lines:
ONDOWNLOAD FOLDER=* FILE=* WAIT=YES
TAG POS=1 TYPE=IMG ATTR=HREF:http://*.jpg CONTENT=EVENT:SAVEPICTUREAS
(script is working ok in ff17 and older)

This error is also reproducable with one of the Demo files; Demo-SaveTargetAs.iim

Google gives this result from Bugzilla:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=820522

It seems Mozilla has rewritten it's code adding an extra argument, and the addons involved needs to be updated to this?

Is there a solution or workaround for this error? Seems to me there must be a lot of iMacro users who are facing this problem.

Thanx Nevyn

it looks like with each firefox update imacros for firefox become less and less functional - in ff16 js files replay issue appear, in ff17 java support was removed, now download does not work. :?
if it will continue like this we will leave with only url goto command :(

I think you are exaggerating just a bit bobis. The issue with .js files playback was resolved with Firefox 17, and there was nothing we could do about Java support, but that was never an iMacros feature to begin with, just a beneficial side affect. This latest issue with the EVENT:SAVETARGETAS not working should be an easy fix.

It's important to stress that these disruptions are being caused by changes to Firefox, and not changes we are making to iMacros itself. We will respond as quickly as possible to address these issues and keep iMacros compatible and functional with all new releases of Firefox.

I quite agree bobis as we are facing more issues in the last versions of iMacros (maybe since mozilla changed their versionning).

No matter who's responsible for that, it is a fact, and i'am sure your programmer team have lot to lot do with all the new firefox versions.

I just posted on the forum about a possible new issue on the beta version, i'am very interested to have an answer : http://forum.imacros.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=18783

Thanks for your work with iMacros which is still a very good addon for firefox.

I get the NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS pb with firefox 18.0 (automatic update) and latest iMacros. All my scripts are saving images.

Just to tell that this is important.

Thanks for providing iMacros.

Although the rest the commands of my iMacros 7.6.0.2 script seems to work in Firefox 18.0 on Mac OS X, the following command does NOT result in a saved file of any type (at least not where I could find it):

Code: Select all

SAVEAS TYPE=PNG FOLDER="/Users/mark/dev/images" FILE=TEST.png

Hi Mark,

Are you receiving an error on that command? Or does the command execute but there is no file?

I know that the problems are related to Firefox changes and not by iMacros, but since I provide imacros bots and scripts to my customers for me it is little embarrassing to tell them all the time that they need to downgrade to ff15 which is latest most stable version to work with imacros (I work with it up until now because of different issues with imacros on latest versions of Firefox).

I usually don't monitor the script in the sidebar, but I just did and it gave the error below when it reached the "SAVEAS" command:

Code: Select all

NS_ERROR_XPC_NOT_ENOUGH_ARGS: Not enough arguments [nsIWebBrowserPersist.saveURI], line: 5 (Error code: -1001)

yes I've also encountered issues with SAVEITEM event on FF18 - it does not save image (it can't find it), while works fine on ff17 and ff15

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=IMG ATTR=SRC:*www.google.com/recaptcha/api/image?c=* CONTENT=EVENT:SAVEITEM

Maybe you have

Code: Select all

SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
That's why you don't get the error
