not related to the original question, but what is this Multi-Login Authentication "that became a bit of a hassle from FF51 also, hum, and maybe from FF50 already " you mentioned in your response? Search of the forum resulted in no hits.
I am planning to upgrade my setup to the latest FF that iMacros version 8.9.7 will work with, which, per my research appears to be 56.0.2 (I realize I will have to remove image filtering from my scripts, and that should be OK), but wanted to make sure I am not missing any other implications, even though this is unlikely to be an issue since I am currently on FF v52 anyway, which is beyond FF50/51 you mentioned.
OK, I remember after updating FF50 to FF51 that "stg" had changed in FF51 (was "vaguely" documented like always in the FF Change-Log), and I had to change/tweak/toggle 2 'about:config' Settings in FF to get some "OK-Acceptable" Config, took me less than 5min then...
Mini-search now, in my 'about:config' on "multi"/"logon"/"login"/"auth"/"log" for my FF55 and hum, I cannot locate which Settings I did modify at that time... So, hum-hum...!? I'm still at FF55, so FF didn't update (and is complaining often enough that my Version is "critically unsafe", ah-ah...!), so hum..., I don't know..., should be easy to find I would think, from the Change-Log for FF50 or FF51...
But yep indeed, if you were already at FF52, you were already "after" that Multi-Login Authentication Change and if you didn't notice anything when you had previously updated to FF52 (ESR I guess), then I guess you are already "immune"...
Hum-hum, was related to 'http'/'https' I think, and only for 'http'...
OK, YES, found them, "http" and "https" didn't find atg relevant, but "secure" did, youpidoo...!
=> OK, those are the 2 'about:config' Settings I had set to "false" after FF50 or FF51 around that time:
And I see I have another related Setting:
=> but left at its Default (= "true") value...
My FF FCI is iMacros for FF v8.9.7 + FF v55.0.3 + Win10_x64.
I am planning to upgrade my setup to the latest FF that iMacros version 8.9.7 will work with, which, per my research appears to be 56.0.2
Not a "good" Idea is my "Advice"...
Yep, v8.9.7 still works on FF56, but hum..., had many Reports (on the Forum) that "many" Things didn't work anymore or correctly in FF56.
Don't go any further than FF v55.0.3, which is the Version I use myself, and works correctly with v8.9.7 for FF. (apart from the 'FILTER' Command that got broken(*) from FF52 or FF53, I don't remember exactly..., I had quickly updated between 2 or 3 FF Versions in one day at that time as soon as I had found out that 'FILTER=ON' would "freeze" my Scripts for several Minutes..., and I was hoping that the next FF Version would "unbreak" it again...)
And "broken(*)" is only noticeable for "heavy" Pages with 1000++ 'IMG' Elements, most Users won't notice any Difference, I would think, would need to 'profile' iMacros before/after and/or to stopwatch-monitor it (or with '!NOW' at the ms Level) to check... Well, with 1000++ Images, we don't talk about ms (=Milliseconds) anymore, rather 10-Sec Unity, oops...!
A Page that would take 2-3-5 Sec to load with 1000++ Images on FF50 or FF51 with 'FILTER=ON', would then need between 3-5 Min to load on FF52 or FF53 (hum, or maybe FF54...(?)) (with 'FILTER=ON'), against about 45 Sec with 'FILTER=OFF' in both FF Versions..., meaning 'FILTER=ON' has no Use anymore from FF51+ as it actually drastically slows down the Loading Time of heavy Pages...
- (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...
