Interesting Post, I like it...!
(And it's nice to "explore" an Issue with you, you have a very consistent Mindset... (Meant as a compliment...!
OK, I'll try to reply consequently...
I first tested on my Default Browser which is the one I use for all my own Scripts:
Pale Moon v24.6.2 (=FF31), iMacros v8.8.2, Win7-x64.
In this Environment, both your EVENT and TAG Scripts work fine!!
I tried the latest version of Pale Moon, which is v25.7.3 (I used x86 & portable). I next tried to install iMacros using the versions page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... /versions/
That page recognized Pale Moon as FF24.9, not FF31 (or higher). How did you determine that Pale Moon v24.6.2 =FF31?
You asked me previously if I was using the x32 or x64 Version of PM... => x32.
My FCI is: iMacros for FF v8.8.2 (VERSION BUILD=8820413 RECORDER=FX), PM v24.6.2-x32, Win7-x64.
Yep, I know PM v24.x is forked on FF24, but PM v24.6.2 was the Version that came around when FF31 came and included all Security Fixes like in FF31, about 1 year ago maybe now, and oops-wow!!, FF31 => FF41...!, ridiculous...!, and CR went from 2 Version Numbers ahead to 5 Version Numbers ahead, it's a bit sad to see that Bullshit 99 Marketing Strategy has taken over the Development for Software...
After PM v24.6.2, I did try to update PM to some later Version when it came out, but I had a Pb at that time and couldn't do so, then PM25 came out, and I knew that some Changes in FF from FF29 I think forced iMacros v8.8.2 to update to v8.8.3 which was not compatible anymore with PM24, so I stuck to v8.8.2 and PM24, even when PM25 came out..., I know my Config works fine, so I stick to it..., until some very incentive New Functionality in iMacros for FF will force me to update and to find some other Stable Config (using PM, or SeaMonkey, or whatever, plain FF is a bit useless for me since 1 or 2 years...), and if I can't, I will simply add myself the new Functionality to "my" Stable Version, I've already done it, I can customize it again...
I'm a bit surprised nearly to see that PM25 is still forked on FF24...

Maybe because, according to the release notes for the next version, "- TAG command fails since the FRAME number is not set to 0"? The version before that, v18.104.22.168 seemed to have some other issue "Fixed: Some strange freeze issue in V8.8.5 (sorry about that)", so I skipped that version. Thus, I went down the list to the next version: v22.214.171.124 (which is what you have?).
Hum, I always say "iMacros for FF v8.8.2" and iMacros says "VERSION BUILD=8820413 RECORDER=FX", so I'm not sure if we are talking about exactly the same Version...
viking wrote:Lo and behold, that combination worked: Pale Moon v25.7.3 (x86, portable)+ iMacros v126.96.36.199 + WIN7 64 bit.
Both TAG and EVENT worked on the saved html page!
Like I said, if v8.8.2 = v188.8.131.52...
But I will give a try to PM25..., I suspected that iMacros for FF v8.8.2 would as well still be the last Version to work on PM25, but I never tested it myself, you are the first to confirm that...
viking wrote:However, only the EVENT command worked on the live webpage (when trying to verify the credit card). This is also what I had observed previously and was the reason for using EVENT rather than TAG in the past.
OK, I couldn't test that part as only the "Number" Type on the HTML Element forced some Validation Offline...
Tom, Tech Support wrote:Hi viking,
I tested your macros and confirmed the issue with the following:
iMacros 8.9.4 and Firefox 41.0.2
iMacros 8.9.2 and Firefox 40.0.2
iMacros 8.9.2 and Firefox 39
iMacros 8.9.2 and Firefox 38.0.1
Entering the value into the field manually works correctly.
Playing the macros with the iMacros Browser also fills the field correctly as expected (using both TAG and EVENT in iMacros 11).
Playing the EVENT macro with iMacros 11 for IE does not work however.
I have logged this for further investigation by the development team, but since it does not yet seem to be a general issue and is more specific to this page/site, I would not expect a resolution any time soon necessarily.
If I have an issue, I am sure that someone else also have or will have an issue...It would be good to have this fixed so that I can continue using Firefox. Otherwise, I guess that I will need to start using Pale Moon instead of Firefox.
If so, can iMacros be made compatible with older version of Firefox (e.g. v.24.9) so that the latest version of iMacros works with Pale Moon?
Yep, I couldn't agree more, but I've already mentioned it several times, and I don't think I recall getting any Acknowledgement from TechSupport... (I didn't insist too much either as I currently have a perfectly working Solution with my Current Config, and I think I must be the only one using that Config, so I knew I wouldn't make any chance... And I always find a "Creative Solution" myself when I encounter a Pb, if I find a Bug, I report it but I don't wait for it to be solved in some hypothetical next Release, I always find a Workaround... In the Thread about the EVENT Mode that you bumped for example, I reported several very Blocking Issues now maybe 2 years ago and I didn't see any single one resolved (if I'm correct...), but I've found (Creative
) Workarounds for all of them...)
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
