Hassle annoyance today - has something changed?

Post by mrodent » Fri Jul 06, 2018 5:54 pm

I just tried to run something.

This is Firefox 55 running on Windows 10. I have deliberately not upgraded Firefox over recent months partly in order to ensure that iMacros continues to work.

I got a message I've never seen before just now: "The address wasn’t understood"

The string in the address bar is:
imacros://run/?m=SearchFrenchTerm.iim

... this file SearchFrenchTerm.iim exists in the directory which I have in the past configured for the location of my files.

Then I go to seen the side bar under View --> Side bar... there is no entry for iMacros.

Then I look at options... Tools --> Add-ons --> Extensions --> iMacros --> and I can't see any way to configure things. OMINOUSLY, I notice that "last updated" was today, 2018-07-06.

Then I see all sorts of nonsense about the "freeware version" having "limited functionality". I don't remember anything about freeware/non-freeware previously.

I tried removing and re-installing iMacros. Nothing changed: still not working properly.

PLEASE CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN WHAT IS GOING ON? Have you now produced a version of iMacros which runs with the more recent ("Quantum" or whatever) versions of Firefox... and do I have to then pay to run a script?

If so, you need to announce such a change with much more CLARITY.

FCIM...! :mrgreen: (Read my Sig...)
=> iMacros for FF v...?, FF55, Win10.

Your Thread Title is not very Descriptive for a Technical Forum, to be honest, "today" won't mean much tomorrow and in 1 week/month/year for other Users searching the Forum... :wink:

But check this Thread which is probably similar to your "Situation"... :idea:
- (F)CI(M) = (Full) Config Info (Missing): iMacros + Browser + OS (+ all 3 Versions + 'Free'/'PE').
- I don't even read the Qt if that (required) Info is not mentioned...!
- Script & URL help a lot for more "educated" Help...
