Great Problem

Post by chross-fader » Wed Jan 09, 2008 7:48 pm


Have imacros installed. After I leave Firefox, and it will reopen appears increasingly displaying a script that no longer respond or still working. If I go to stop script, I come into the Firefox back here. Unfortunately, Imacros no more. Have there been uninstalled and about: config delete everything without success. Asking for help because I need it urgently. If the latest version.
Sorry for my English.

We were able to recreate a (similar?) issue. Please check the folders inside your macro folder if one of them contains many nested folders. It seems that iMacros creates such an array of nested folders under certain circumstances when renaming folders (we are currently investigating this). After deleting this nested folder structure, iMacros starts fine again. Please let me know if this solution works for you.


The default macro location is
Vista: c:\users\<user-name>\Documents\iMacros\Macros
Win 2000/XP/2003: C:\Documents and Settings\<user-name>\My Documents\iMacros\Macros

I have experienced the same issue (rarely, but most recently last week using Firefox and iMacros when renaming and I believe moving macros/folders with the Firefox add-on. It usually creates around 12 nested folders.

Has the nested folder issue been identified and addressed? Any info is appreciated.
