Chrome 35 update breaks iMacros for Chrome [Fixed]
Update 2014/5/26: A new version with a fix is available in the Google Chrome extension gallery. For more details please see http://wiki.imacros.net/iMacros_for_Chrome#Installation
If you have any questions or still encounter issues, please inform us in the iMacros for Chrome user forum.
It is as bad as it sounds. iMacros for Chrome works just fine in Chrome 34 but once Chrome auto-updates to V35 macro play or edit are broken.
We are investigating this issue with high priority. We found the culprit and hope to provide a fix for it by tomorrow – please stay tuned.
In stead, it now returns an array of <frameElement> objects that still can provide the access to the underling DOM document through contentDocument property (see http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/prop_frame_contentdocument.asp ) which is, maybe, closer to what of modern practices should be. That’s why it probably is pointless to send them a bug report concerning the issue.
The problem is that the iMacros for Chrome uses the window.frames old-style assuming that the array contains DOM windows.
Also, it seems they haven’t mentioned this change anywhere explicitly:
