SAVEAS TYPE=CPL works in Firefox but not in iMacros Browser

Post by ecraigil » Fri Jan 27, 2017 12:11 am

Windows 7 Enterprise
iMacros Browser V11.1.495.5175 Trial Version
Firefox 50.1.0
iMacros for Firefox 8.9.3 (not the latest, but 9.0.3 didn't detect when the page load was complete so I had to revert)

I have a macro that I recorded in iMacros for Firefox has worked properly in Firefox for the last several months. It doesn't do much:

Code: Select all

URL GOTO=<URL hidden>
The page has several frames populated by external HTML files. When the script is run in Firefox, all of these external HTML files are saved in the a1_files folder, but when the exact same script is run in the iMacros Browser, it doesn't save the HTML files. All other files, including graphics and JavaScript are saved in the iMacros Browser. I saw in the Wiki that TYPE=CPL isn't supported in Chrome, but it didn't say anything about the iMacros Browser.

We have a backend program that was written to parse and perform several calculations on the data in these HTML files that are missing, and the easiest solution would be to get this to work. We need to automate this process to run late at night, which is why I got the trial version. How can I get the HTML files from the frames to be saved in the a1_files folder from the iMacros Browser?
