Vugen 11.51 Firefox TruClient + Remote XUL Extension

I am attempting to use Ajax TruClient for Firefox to monitor on out-of-box application (Oracle Hyperion). According to Oracle, in order to use Firefox to access Hyperion, the Remote XUL extension must be installed, so I did, and it works perfectly, as long as I have Firefox open in Develop Script mode and am running it from there.

However, when I close out Firefox and run the script from within Vugen, it fails with exactly the error I would expect to see if the extension were not installed.

 

When saving a script and running from outside of Firefox, are extensions also saved? Are their configurations saved, if they were made within the browser?

 

Thanks.

Re: Vugen 11.51 Firefox TruClient + Remote XUL Extension

TruClient uses a specific browser which comes together with the protocol. In order to use extension, you have to make sure that this browser contains it in his profile. I did not try it in the past, but I'm sure you can do that.

 

You can find direfox , and his relevant directories here:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Virtual User Generator\bin\firefox\extensions

C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Virtual User Generator\bin\firefox\

 

IF you it does not work for you let me know, and I will try to assist further

Re: Vugen 11.51 Firefox TruClient + Remote XUL Extension

I imported the extension from within Vugen using Tools->TruClient General Settings->Extensions and then importing it from a file (I needed to use an older version for compatibility with the version of FF used by TruClient, so I had to download it). I can see it there when I go back in. When using FF to record the TC script from Vugen, FF runs as if the extension is installed. However, I do not see the extension when I look in that folder.

 

Is there maybe a different folder that it might be stored in (i.e., a folder in my %appdata%) that I may need to move it from in order to have it included?

 

Thanks.
