Change Request - Don't close browser till downloads complete

The iMacros browser will sometimes close itself or timeout BEFORE a download has finished! This is especially easy to re-create if you use WINCLICKs to click a button that will download something. WINCLICK does NOT care if the browser is loading something or if the downloads are incomplete and the iMacros browser will close instantly if the WINCLICK is the last thing in the script.

Please note that iMacros browsers will only close automatically when called from a commandline.

WAIT SECONDS= Is you friend here. Pick a reasonable amount of time to wait and you shoudl be fine. I think there is also a WAIT SECONDS=DOWNLOAD but I have never used it. You may want to spend a bit more time with the manual.

I know about using WAIT SECONDS here but its not an acceptable workaround. They have to have something better than that in the future. This is more of a feature request.

What if my downloads varry from 1 hour to 10 seconds?

I confirmed the issue, we will improve this ASAP. Please note that iMacros for Firefox already works as expected => The macro does not proceed until the download is complete.
