Yeah, but... not entirely.

Well, let me explain the remaining freeze issue: I'm working with two different and separate Firefox sessions (profiles), each one running its own set of macros.

The first one does the its own job and then it writes a text file with some important data that will be picked up lately by the second session.

In the meanwhile, the second Firefox session does its own job and at the end of the process it looks for the above mentioned text file and if found it will be opened (displayed in the browser) and scanned with a SEARCH SOURCE=REGEXP command to extract some strings that will be saved in another text log file.

Well... with iMacros prior to version 8.8.5 if the second Firefox session completed all the tasks before the first one, it simply didn't found the text file, the browser showed the "not found" page and the macro continued to search for a specific string (specified by the RegEx command) for as long as specified in !TIMEOUT_STEP.
When the first session of Firefox completed the job, the text file became available for the second one that could have been restarted exactly where it was on-hold by simply clicking the "retry" button into the "not found" page.
So, the text file was loaded and the macro completed the few remaining steps.

In such a circumstance, with 8.8.7 version, clicking the "retry" button in the second Firefox session (when the text file from first session becomes available) simply shows that file but the macro keeps being stuck at the SEARCH SOURCE=REGEXP command for indefinite time.

Please, report DETAILED informations regarding your specific freeze issues in the following thread:
http://forum.imacros.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=23685

Version 8.8.5 is outdated and I recommend to discuss everything related to a newer version in a separate thread to avoid confusion and misunderstandings.

Confirm that the issue disappears with me in version 8.8.7
I Love iMacros and I did many complex automation processes using it.
