TAB= Delay. How to change.

Post by zgwstores » Fri Sep 20, 2013 10:26 pm

FF 22.0
iMacros version ???? How do you tell?

I now have a 5 second delay for each executed TAB command if the tab does not exist.

This is annoying as I use multiple tab commands to navigate to the last tab,


Is there a way to decrease the delay?

Why did the TAB command all of a sudden get a delay? Did I inadvertently update?

Hi zgwstores,

Yes, this is a result of an update to iMacros 8.5.1. I'm not sure at this point why that delay was introduced or whether it is a bug. Thank you for taking the time to report this here and bringing it to our attention! I have logged this issue for further investigation by our development team.

just like zgwstores', my efforts have also been torpedoed by the ominous update feature identified by Tom.
For further details, please see ... 782#p54782; maybe someone knows the answers.
Thank you!
