Ipswitch is pleased to announce the release of iMacros for Firefox 10 with updates for both the Freeware and Personal editions. iMacros for Firefox 10 brings compatibility with Firefox Quantum (v56 and later) along with an updated, cleaner user interface and detachable sidebar.
With thanks for input from our customers, partners, freeware users and beta testers, Ipswitch has updated iMacros for Firefox with:
- New compatibility with Firefox 56 and later
- New color and icons, modern and clean design
- New ability to dock or undock the iMacros sidebar to the browser
- Added domain name filter to CLEAR command for clearing cookies
- Added support for the !PLAYBACKDELAY command
- Added read-only !FOLDER_MACROS and !FOLDER_DOWNLOAD variables for referencing these paths in other commands
- Added image recognition-specific command and variables: SIZE, !IMAGEX and !IMAGEY
- Fixed various software errors
iMacros for Firefox 10 is a complete rewrite of the add-on using the WebExtension API introduced with Firefox Quantum and supported in Firefox 56 and later. This is also the same API used by Chrome, so you will notice many similarities and shared functionality between these two iMacros products now. However, because the implementation of the WebExtension API varies with each browser vendor, i.e. Google and Mozilla, not all functionality and features supported are the same between iMacros for Firefox and Chrome.
There are a number of commands, variables, and functionality that were previously supported in iMacros for Firefox that currently are not. Please see the release notes in the iMacros wiki for details.
With the release of iMacros for Firefox 10, some features are only available with a Personal Edition (or higher) license. Details can be found below:
