Initiate IE plugin - should be automatic

Post by colforbin » Sun Apr 15, 2007 11:14 pm

I had to make a macro called #initiateIE that consists of REFRESH, BACK to run when I first use the IE plugin to intiate it.

Otherwise I get the screen that says "The iMacros Plugin successfully connected to this web browser window.
To get back to the page you were originally viewing, click the "Go back" button or use your browsers BACK button."

Why isn't this automatically built into the program? Its just annoying to have to remember to run this initiation macro anytime I want to use the IE plugin. This doesn't seem like it would be that hard to implement.

Does this happen every time you open the plugin? Are you using the latest version 5.22?

This does not happen here when I open the plugin in IE7.

Happens every time a new IE7 window is opened.

How can this message be bypassed?
